Philosophy & Goals

A specialized investment vehicle promoting the participation of women in the decision-making bodies of companies
shown that companies with a higher percentage of women in boards or senior management perform better than
the average.

"Newly public companies that have women in senior management enjoy higher initial public offering prices and higher
earnings per share than companies that have all-made management teams."

Professor Theresa Welbourne of University of Michigan Business School – July 1999 ‘The study suggests that the
companies where women are most strongly represented at board or top-management level are also the
companies that perform best.’
Women Matter, “Gender diversity, a corporate performance drive”, McKinsey study report 2007.

Gender diversity (women/men) within management leads to performance ‘Women and girls aren’t the problem;
they are the solution’, Nicholas D. Kristof, The New York Times, August 23, 2009
