Gender equality is a critical pillar of a healthy society and economy. And a growing body of evidence suggests that empowering women is critical to boosting global prosperity. Yet for decades insufficient attention and funding has been directed towards women’s rights, women’s economic empowerment and gender equality in business, government and broader society. While in recent years, stakeholders from philanthropists to policy makers have been pushing for equality between women and men, the recognition that equality is also good for business and the economy has prompted another constituent to join the movement: investors.

From companies promoting women as senior executives to those providing services to women and girls in developing countries, FT Investing for Good USA 2018 will explore the opportunities for gender lens investors to contribute to supporting women’s equality while also generating a return.

    In 2015, United Nations’ member states committed to adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), an ambitious set of objectives aimed at ending poverty by 2030 while promoting equality, access to education and environmental sustainability. Goal 5 aims to “achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls”. This panel will ask how the investment community – from gender lens investors and impact investors to shareholder activists – could accelerate progress towards meeting this goal.

    Panel Discussion: Investing in Female Entrepreneurs

    According to the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, women make up about 45 per cent of social entrepreneurs worldwide (compared to the corporate sector, where male entrepreneurs outnumber women by approximately two to one). Yet women still face barriers to starting an enterprise, from lack of access to finance to laws in some countries banning women from owning property. What legal and financial obstacles need to be removed to help boost the supply of investable female enterprises?
