Outreach and Advocacy
We aim to move the topic of gender diversity to the main strategic agenda of the industry and individual firms. We help create a strong voice for women in private equity by promoting the business case for gender diversity and increasing awareness of the challenges they face in the industry. Level 20’s advocacy work includes talking directly to the leaders of private equity firms about the value of building inclusive cultures to allow diversity to flourish, publishing “Thought Leadership” pieces on building diverse teams and engaging with a wide range of influencers, including government and the media, to promote the benefits of greater gender diversity.
Our outreach programme aims to encourage young women to consider careers in private equity to expand the pool of candidates available. We are targeting women at different points in their career planning, including girls in their final years of school, undergraduates, business school graduates and young professionals who are considering a move into private equity.
