At Nuveen, we believe that diversity of thought, people and investment solutions is critical to our success, results in better outcomes for our clients and will position our industry to create positive and lasting economic and social impact.  This is a core element to Nuveen’s belief in investing by example.  As an industry leader in empowering women and future female leaders in asset management, Nuveen’s Leadership, Education, Advocacy & Development (LEAD) organization is hosting a series of industry events to foster greater dialogue and collaboration around this principle with experts who’ve driven change by promoting diversity within their own industries.  Please join us for this exciting series of events. 

LEAD’s 2019 activities will focus on bringing together industry and internal partners to set up a scalable, efficient and meaningful process to drive gender equality. Our theme this year is Inclusion by Example.

We have enlisted Liz Brunner, CEO and Founder of Brunner Communications, to deliver our curriculum. Quarterly topics will build upon each quarterly theme and culminate in a networking session at this year’s LEAD Annual Meeting.

We will broadcast live from the host location. Can’t make it? We also plan to record the sessions and will make them available to you after the event.
