IR Magazine and the NIRI San Francisco Chapter invites you to join us for an inaugural west coast Women in IR event.

Last year, IR Magazine uncovered a glass ceiling in the IR world: global IRO survey revealed that while the number of men and women who work in IR is roughly equal, two thirds of heads of IR positions go to men. Within IR, however, the news came as a surprise: IR has always been an industry with many women in senior positions. Despite this, the study shows more needs to be done to improve career opportunities for women in investor relations.

  • Globally, 67% of top IR jobs are held by men.
  • Across four major indices – S&P 100, TSX 60, FTSE 100 and DAX – 25% of companies have a female IR head.
  • 36% of female IR heads take home more than $200,000 a year – compared with 47% of male IR heads.

This evening is part of a new series of events aimed at improving the role and value of women in IR. This evening event will feature prominent female speakers from IR and beyond, as well as panel debates designed to explore how to address the issues and put pressure on the industry to confront it. 

IR Magazine and NIRI San Francisco are supporting the Coalition for the Homeless’ First Step  programme. First Step gives homeless and low-income women the skills and confidence they need to achieve financial independence. A major part of this is to prepare women for employment. Often these women cannot afford a professional outfit to wear to interviews.

We would be delighted if you are able to bring along an unwanted business outfit. They will be donated to women on the First Step programme.

We look forward to seeing you there!
