In a long standing commitment to sustainability through the power of partnerships, Guggenheim Investments teams up with Girls Who Invest to help move the asset management industry toward gender equality.
Founded in 2015, Girls Who Invest is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry. GWI is comprised of educational programs, paid internships, and an ongoing support community. Of the approximately 500 young women who have participated since its inception, 26 percent were socioeconomically disadvantaged, and 20 percent were historically underrepresented minorities.
The summer of 2019 saw Guggenheim host its first group of interns with plans in the future of hosting more. In addition to providing financial support to and hosting interns from GWI, Guggenheim Investments has sponsored GWI roundtables, facilitated interactive discussions with interns and first year analysts, and attended dinners and functions hosted by GWI.
Guggenheim believes that an engaged and gender-diverse workforce results in better business outcomes. This belief helped create our Women’s Innovation and Inclusion Network (WIIN) in 2015 to serve as a strategic advisor, providing recommendations on the design and implementation of wellness and benefits programs, supplier diversity, and resources particularly relating to women.
Guggenheim will continue to expand on GWI initiatives as the partnership grows stronger and deeper. This will include access to senior leadership, more exposure to the asset management business, and a commitment to helping GWI reach their long-term goals. Our support of Girls Who Invest is but another stepping stone to promoting a more diverse workforce.
