In corporate Canada, only 3 per cent of TSX-listed companies have a female CEO and only 14 per cent of board seats at TSX-listed firms are occupied by women. Why is the number of women in capital markets still so low?
For this panel event, we’re not only going to focus on the barriers keeping women from entering capital markets, but also uncover sustainable solutions. Ultimately, we will explore how firms can foster a culture that is attractive and inclusive for women.
Our panel event will include; Amber Choudhry, Managing Director, Debt Capital Markets at CIBC Capital; Deland Kamanga, Head of Global Fixed Income Currencies and Commodities (FICC) within BMO Capital Markets; Sarah Kaplan, Director of the Institute for Gender and the Economy; Loretta Marcoccia, SVP & Chief Administrative Officer, Global Capital Markets, Scotiabank; and Camilla Sutton, President and CEO of Women in Capital Markets.
This event is co-hosted by the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE), and Women in Capital Markets (WCM).
