The first Winpe Collegium was held on the day of the Winpe launch. The Collegium started with Winpe’s mission partners going through a diversity workshop with EY that provoked both questions and reflections. With brain juices flowing, the participants got into a closed door session to discuss and debate the key challenges and hurdles that the private equity and venture capital ecosystem faces in hiring and retaining women, and what could be possible solutions to address some of these challenges.
As the participants identified areas for action and debated steps that could be taken, the passion and commitment to the cause enlivened the room. Nothing could keep the enthusiasm down, not even knowing that the outcomes would be made public! Scroll down to read the six action items that our mission partners have collectively committed themselves and their firms to.
