    The practice of investing with a gender lens continues to grow among the impact investing community in terms of scope and depth. Some investors are incorporating gender into their investment strategies to gain performance advantages, others are exploring how they can create gender-related change through their investments. While interest is growing, there is no single, one-size-fits all approach, and many have questions about what exactly Gender Lens investing is and what potential investment advantages it might offer.

    The Microfinance Club of New York is excited to host a panel discussion to address these questions and more. Join panelists to learn more about what investing with a gender lens looks like in practice and explore the opportunities and challenges this exciting strategy presents.
