Breakfast Club 08: Diversity in Banking and Finance

-
Hotel Böglerhof
Breakout / Breakfast Club
german language

Women and minorities are even less common in top positions in the financial sector than in most other sectors. For example, women only hold one-tenth of the top management posts in the Eurozone’s biggest banks. Why and how could banks benefit from a more diverse staff? What would the effects of more diversity be on decision-making processes inside banks and the corporate culture as a whole? Would it impact performance at all? What does diversity in the portfolio of products depend on?
