DOWNLOAD: Antares Capital on how DE&I is taking centre stage

Firms need to be intentional about creating a gender diverse workplace, ensuring women have meaningful seats at the table and making representation a priority, say Antares Capital’s Tracy Raben, Beth Troyer and Devasena Vallabhaneni

Firms have made considerable progress in attracting women to join the financial services sector, with approximately equal numbers of men and women hired for entry-level roles, according to McKinsey’s latest Women in the Workplace report.

But progress is much slower in closing the gender gap at senior levels. Only 24 percent of C-suite roles in the US are held by women. At the same time, women face higher rates of burnout and are often expected to handle more than their fair share of ‘office housework’.

In this downloadable presentation, Tracy Raben, Antares Capital’s chief human resources officer; Beth Troyer, managing director for credit; and Devasena Vallabhaneni, managing director for originations, explain how progress on DE&I is being made but that more work needs to be done.
