The Investment Gap

We’ve all heard of the wage gap but the gender investment gap could cost women just as much over the course of their careers.

Did you know that in 2016, women-led companies made up just 4.9% of venture capital deals and received only 2.19% of venture capital dollars? Or that when compared to American men, fewer American women have started saving for retirement, they’ve saved less and they place 68% of their money in cash?

What is being done locally to address these disparities? What can we do to narrow our personal investment gap? Why does it matter?

Join us for an evening of lively discussion where we will dive into these questions with the help of:

  • Yvonne Campos, President of The Next Act Fund, Pittsburgh’s first women focused angel fund
  • Kim Forrest, VP and Senior Analyst, Fort Pitt Capital
  • Katharine Perry, Associate Financial Consultant, Fort Pitt Capital
