Watch on demand: Women in Investment Career Booster webinar on how to progress as a leader

Investment Week was pleased to host the third in our new series of Career Booster webinars linked to our Women in Investment Awards, in association with HSBC Asset Management, focusing on helping women progress and thrive in leadership roles within the sector.

This webinar would be of interest to women in the industry who would like to step up to a leadership position, as well as women who would like to progress in a leadership role.  

This discussion would also be of interest to male and female managers who would like to do more to support women in their teams and encourage female leaders.

Our panel of senior women shared the secrets of their success building a career as a leader. They offered practical advice on what works in establishing a position as a leader and building a team, as well as tackled some of the roadblocks women may face. 

They also suggested ways that companies and the investment industry can help attract and develop female leaders. 

Our panellists for the leadership webinar were: 

  • Ozge Usta, head of sustainability delivery at HSBC Asset Management
  • Liz Field, chief executive at PIMFA
  • Sarah Soar, chief executive, Hawksmoor Investment Management
