Gender Equitable Investment in Tech (GEIT)
A project of the EQUALS Leadership Coalition
About the Project
Despite the fact that women make up over half the world’s population, they have very low representation in the investment of the world’s assets. According to Morgan Stanley, this disparity currently constitutes a multi-trillion dollar missed opportunity globally. The Boston Consulting Group notes that gender-diverse businesses have 53% higher ROE, 19% higher Innovation Revenue and 6% higher net profit. Improving diversity in the tech sector represents a massive economic and financial opportunity.
