Welcome to The Path to COP (26) Podcast by Nordea Asset Management and in association with the Global Ethical Finance Initiative. Produced and Hosted by New Fund Order.

Episode 2 - Gender agenda: "Full and Meaningful Participation of Women and Girls in Climate Change".

The UNFCC had already specifically noted how climate change was impacting women globally, more than men, whilst at the same time the tone within our own industry… with respect to the social agenda, worker inequality and diversity… had been rising in recent years. So there is plenty for COP to talk about today.

Join me, JB Beckett, your host and guests Bev from CityHive and Katarina from Nordea for the second Path to COP podcast, covering;

We look at % representation of women fund managers, the number is way too low.. why hasn’t the industry evolved in over two decades?

Attracting women into Asset Management, what are we getting right, what are we getting wrong?

Education; how do we use Education to attract and promote women into key professions?

Why does better gender equality help cognitive diversity and EQ in the investment process?

Is the ESG debate becoming too focussed on Net Zero at the risk of the social agenda?

Equality and diversity on boards and Exec level, why is it important for better ESG?

Are Quotas necessary or do they confuse the mission?

How can investors deploy capital better to support gender equality and sustainable and social aims more generally?

What can fund allocators do to address equality and diversity?
