Meet the IWII advisory board and judges

Pensions and Investments assembled an advisory board of leading investors and key industry executives to determine questions and areas on which to focus, such as leadership and contributions to the advancement of women, for the Influential Women in Institutional Investing application. The board also was instrumental in shaping themes for the upcoming conference, to be held Sept. 14 in Chicago. Along with the advisory board, other industry leaders and P&I staff were key in reading and evaluating nominations for the 2023 inaugural class of female leaders.
