GQR makes diversity, equity and inclusion a central part of our commitment to excellence. This is part of what makes us so excited about the HFA NY Women in Alternatives: 2020 Economic Outlook event. The Hedge Fund Association and RSM US LLP are holding a celebratory symposium with women in alternatives as the focus. The speaker lineup includes Kevin Depew, Deputy Chief Economist at RSM LLP, Deepika Sharma, CFA, Director of BlackRock, and Stacey Sheeley, Partner at RSM LLP.
The participation of Deepika Sharma is especially exciting because BlackRock CEO Larry Fink is open about his firm’s commitment to conscious capitalism; a commitment shared by GQR as well. And, when the Hedge Fund Association of New York collaboratively starts a celebration for women in alternatives, you know the industry is paying attention. Over the course of the past 10 years, GQR recruiters have successfully headhunted and placed hundreds of high-end hedge fund professionals, including private equity specialists and investment bankers – all while consulting our clients to select their candidates by merit and accomplishment. Our company and career specialists consistently develop ways to strategically support hiring managers and human resources professionals to eliminate subconscious bias from the hiring process, resulting in the recruitment and placement of individuals from diverse backgrounds in a historically male-dominated field.
This event is not only an interactive discussion about economics and diversity, but it is also a networking party with cocktails and hors d’oevres! Gain important new insight, and meet and greet other influential people in your field. Investors, executives and all other professionals in the business of hedge funds, including private equity, are encouraged to attend.
