By Invite only: Celebrate International Women’s Day: Break The Bias

Sponsored by 400 Capital Management LLC
Break The Bias refers to the challenges and opportunities, from both a US and a global context, in advancing the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation and response to building a more sustainable future.

The Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow theme of the 2022 United Nation’s International Women’s Day addresses the gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping that impede women’s economic advancement.

Delve more deeply into these issues as you hear from a panel of women leaders at a virtual program organized by the 100 Women in Finance New York Risk Peer Advisory Group.
