Convergence XII: Investing with a Gender Lens
Convergence is Criterion’s signature event. It is a unique gathering of the catalytic change-makers from our network. Convergence XII convenes the leaders and pioneers in the gender lens investing space – the women and men committed to realizing the opportunities that a gender lens can unveil across investing communities.
There will be no speakers, no workshops – just extraordinary conversations among folks actively engaged in gender lens investing, social capital markets and issues around women and gender. As always, Convergence will be designed around participants – to reflect the interests, passions and current focuses of work that they bring. We look forward to having you join us.
