Our research showed that while the IR profession has a 50/50 gender split, 67 percent of senior positions are held by men and just 33 percent by women.
Such stats are depressingly familiar throughout the business world. Within IR, however, the news came as a surprise: IR has always been an industry with many women in senior positions. This evening is part of our global initiative of events, articles and research reports aimed at throwing diversity within the IR profession into the spotlight. We’d love to have you join the debate.
We would like to invite you to take part in our new speed mentoring session at the Women in IR event in NY. We offer three 20-minute sessions with some of the industry’s most senior and experienced figures to help mentor and advise the talent of tomorrow.
Get notes on how to deal with specific challenges, improve ways of working and structure your career. If you, or someone you know is interested in taking part, you can book your slot when you sign up for the event. Simply tick the box that you would like to join the session.
Spaces are extremely limited and we want to ensure that they are all taken advantage of, so please book now to avoid disappointment.
Based on responses from more than 900 IR professionals, our 2019 research report on Women in IR follows on from the findings in the IR Magazine Global IR Salary & Careers Report 2018. The report examines the pay and career experiences of women working in investor relations according to three factors:
It then compares these with those of their male counterparts to see where gender differences lie.
The report goes beyond the headline figures to identify when and where men and women are treated differently – and, indeed, equally – in their pay and career experiences. It shows that, while there is little overt or deliberate sexism in IR, a number of circumstantial factors have led to the overall gender disparity we currently see. Find out more about the report.
This year’s Women in IR US forum is hosted by BNY Mellon and will take place at their corporate headquarters, in the heart of New York City:
