Silvia Bosoni, head of Italy ETFs, ETPs and open end Funds, Listing and Market Development, Borsa Italiana - London Stock Exchange Group, has joined the judging panel for the inaugural Women In Investment Awards Italy 2019, which take place on 2 October in Milan.
She said: "I am delighted to be part of the Women In Investment Awards Italy 2019 judging panel."
"It is encouraging to see that the topic of gender diversity is getting more and more drive across most industries. As a female working in financial services, I have seen the sector making huge improvements and I'm extremely proud of the efforts that my workplace, Borsa Italiana - part of London Stock Exchange Group - is making in promoting gender diversity. At LSEG, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment where colleagues can be their true selves and we celebrate difference, but we still have some distance to go. We are actively working to have a female presence of 40% by 2020 across the Group. We also encourage the entrepreneurship of our colleagues in the sector through the internal network WIN (Women Inspired Network) with the creation of cutting-edge initiatives in support of ‘diversity'."
InvestmentEurope has launched the Women In Investment Awards Italy 2019 on International Women's Day, 8 March, enabling nomination entries to be posted from that date.
The Awards are open to those working in firms operating in Italy's investment industry. Nominees can be involved in roles including but not limited to fund management, wealth management, investment research, financial advice, investment analysis, marketing, sales, human resources, compliance, middle-, front- or back-office within the investment sector.
Once the nomination period is over, the nominated women will be contacted by InvestmentEurope and asked to complete a questionnaire. The panel of judges will then review the questionnaires to decide a shortlist which will be announced in mid July
