AFFECT formed recently to promote gender equality in the finance profession, to facilitate networking among women, to provide mentoring of women, and to conduct research on the standing of women and differences in the career paths of men versus women in finance. At the breakfast, there will be a discussion of issues that may be of particular interest to women who are doing research and teaching in finance, information about what AFFECT is doing, and a short survey regarding issues related to peoples’ experiences within the academic field of finance.
All are welcome, and broad attendance is encouraged.
