Nyt Diversitetsnetværk i Finansforeningen
Finansforeningen holder d. 19. januar et kick-off arrangement med henblik på at lancere et nyt Diversitetsnetværk, som skal arbejde med diversitet i vores del af finanssektoren.
Netværket er for alle, og det første fokus vil være på kønsdiversitet, men vi kommer også til at sætte fokus på andre områder som nationalitet, etnicitet, religion, seksualitet, alder, uddannelse, neurodiversitet etc.
Netværket arrangerer 2-3 årlige møder, primært som halvdagsmøder. Første arrangement (kick-off arrangementet) er gratis.
Initiativtagere til og udvalget bag Diversitetsnetværket er Camilla Jenkey, Chief Communications Consultant, Danske Invest, og Elizabeth Holmenlund, CFA, Vice President, Morgan Stanley.
Kick-off arrangement d. 19. januar 2023
Vi har inviteret Alexandra Morris, Investment Director, SKAGEN Funds, og leder af og initiativtager til Kvinner i frontfinans, og Mette Lindbæk, adm. direktør, Finance Society Norway (Forening for finansfag Norge), til at fortælle om Kvinner i Frontfinans og deres undersøgelser. Derudover vil Christian Heiberg, Head of Danske Bank Asset Management, og Trine Ahrenkiel, HR-, kommunikations- og marketingsdirektør, Nykredit, fortælle om, hvordan hhv. Danske Bank Asset Management og Nykredit arbejder med diversitet.
Hvorfor er diversitet vigtigt?
Der er mange rapporter, som viser, at høj diversitet giver bedre resultater. McKinsey udgav i 2020 en rapport med titlen ’Diversity wins: How inclusion matters’. En af hovedkonklusionerne var, at forholdet mellem diversitet i ledelsen og sandsynligheden for økonomisk fremgang er blevet styrket.
På landsplan ligger Danmark nr 2 lige efter Sverige i kønsdiversitet ifølge EUs Gender Equality Index fra 2021. Danmark ligger også højt på World Economic Forum’s gender equality index. Men denne lighed afspejler sig ikke i asset management-industrien i Norden. AMWatch skrev flg. i oktober 2021:
“Mixed-gender portfolio management teams have almost doubled in number over the past six years, but Norway and Denmark are still lagging behind the global average and are on par with India, Brazil and Mexico. In addition, although Sweden leads in the percentage of female fund managers in the Nordics, it clearly lags behind three Mediterranean countries, Citywire’s Alpha Female Report 2021 concludes.
According to the report, whilst 16 percent of fund managers in Sweden are women – the highest figure in the Nordic region, and the figure is 11 percent in Finland, in Norway and Denmark, just 6 percent of fund managers are women.
In the Mediterranean, teams are more mixed, with women making up 22 percent of fund managers in Spain, 21 percent in Italy and 18 percent in France.”
I det nye diversitetsnetværk i Finansforeningen er der således rig mulighed for at være med til at gøre en forskel for diversiteten i kapitalforvaltning i Danmark.
