EMEA Women's Network

Hello and welcome to AIMA’s EMEA Women’s Network.

We have carved a space for all women across our industry dedicated to self-development and fellowship. Whether you wish to meet and learn from like-minded women or seek a safe space to offload and take a break, the network hosts a number of initiatives to support you at all stages of your career.

 If you are interested in joining the network and our AIMA Connect communities, please contact me at [email protected].

Launched in May 2020,  the EMEA Women’s Network provides a forum for women across the alternative investment industry to connect, find mentors, and develop the skills and knowledge necessary to further their careers.

Three subgroups of the network have been convened for Early Professionals (recent graduates and those with up to 5 years’ experience in the industry); Middle Level and Experienced Professionals; and Mothers and Carers. The sub-groups meet every other month through virtual drop-in chats, where individuals can drop by for any duration and maintain connections. Recent drop-in chats have focussed on COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement, and individuals have valued the opportunity to learn what other firms are doing.

The network also holds skills workshops for each subgroup, with a focus on self and career development. Our first series of workshops were held in July 2020 and focused on how individuals could develop their personal brand (and virtually) and career moves abroad.

Beyond gatherings, members of the network are able to engage with one another directly and share resources via the AIMA Connect platform.
