Nidhi will discuss:

  • how industry participants, including asset managers, asset owners, consultants and regulators interact
  • key questions from her research paper “Addressing Gender Folklore"
    Are we biased against making necessary change? Are we too influenced by familiar reference points; too distracted by benchmarks and peer comparison?
