Gender Lens Investing Convergence 2013
October 2-4, 2013  |  Simsbury, CT

For the third year in a row, Criterion is convening a group of catalytic change-makers: the leaders and advocates of gender lens investing. Join us at our Gender Lens Investing Convergence this fall to engage with others who are working to re-imagine how gender is incorporated into investing. This conference is a part of our ongoing effort to fuel the growth of gender lens investing through our Women Effect Investments initiative.

Want to meet some of the top thinkers in the Gender Lens Investing world?

Gender Lens Investing is changing the way financial markets value women and girls. It is changing how women see their own power of investors. A gender lens reveals more information, making us smarter investors. It’s shifting the rules of financial markets, making them work better for the world’s women and girls. And, we hope you’ll join us to learn about, support and advance this work at Convergence.

We’re looking for a few students who want to join the event, capture conversations, and help us curate what happens at Convergence 2013! This is a great networking and learning opportunity.

In exchange for your help, you get to attend for free (registration is $800). BUT, you need to commit to at least 80% of the time, beginning at 3 p.m. on Wednesday through Friday at 4 p.m. And you need to arrange your own transportation to and from Simsbury, Connecticut (about 20 min from Middletown).

If you are interested and think you can make this work contact
