This highly interactive Summit features informative sessions and candid conversations. Participants are successful women from across the spectrum of private equity, venture capital, credit, and other private market investments who want to see other women succeed and who have profound industry experience, information to share, unique stories to tell, and lessons to teach.

With keynote sessions and moderated panel discussions featuring an international roster of industry leaders, participants have the opportunity to connect with and learn from women pioneering innovative strategies for fundraising, deal sourcing, portfolio management, and liquidity management. Evening networking functions and a variety of optional pre-Summit and early morning networking activities round out the program.

The Women's Private Equity Summits are ideal for making new contacts, renewing old friendships, and building a trusted network to help advance your firm — and your place — in the industry.
