In leveraging capitalism to achieve more sustainable economic growth and development, this month’s edition of the “Cornerstone Journal of Sustainable Finance & Banking” (JSFB), employs a “Gender Lens.” We highlight gender diversity and inclusion as a tremendous stimulator of economic growth. With contributions from across the capital markets – at the World Economic Forum, ImpactAssets, WEConnect, RobecoSAM, Families and Work Institute, and HealRWorld, to name a few – we call for continued progress and transformation by urging global market participants to enhance their perspectives around gender issues in the investment process.
