Our mission and Vision

Level 20 is a not-for-profit organisation formed, seeded and nurtured by a group of 12 women working in senior roles in private equity, representing both GPs and LPs. We aim to deliver greater representation for women at all levels of the industry, and strive to do this by inspiring them to join and succeed in this dynamic industry. We believe that gender diversity will lead to superior investment performance, particularly as women progress to senior levels. Myriad studies have established a correlation between gender diversity in senior teams and higher returns on equity at PLCs; we see no reason why private equity should be different. We are promoting our vision through five pillars; a career mentoring programme, research relevant to gender diversity in private equity, outreach activities to inspire ambition and interest at an early age, networking for women at all stages in their careers with a special group group focused on those early in their careers, a commitment to philanthropy.
