Level 20 is a not for profit organisation dedicated to improving gender diversity in the European private equity industry.

Our ambition is for women to hold 20% of senior positions in this dynamic industry. To that end, we work to inspire women to join the private equity industry, particularly in investment roles, and to help them succeed by providing support and facilitating the sharing of insights and experience. Our latest study with the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, completed in March 2021, shows 10% of senior investment roles are held by women compared to 6% in 2018.

We are grateful for the ongoing support of our growing membership of over 2,500 individuals and for the financial commitment of over 80 private equity firms who sponsor us today, alongside other firms working in the private equity sector who also give us financial support. Together we are creating a stronger voice for improving senior female representation across the industry.
