PWG is organizing a panel discussion on a life-changing topic for the most of us – Why and how you should start investing.

Please join us at 25 Hours Hotel Zurich on the 16th of April, 2019 at 6:30pm.

We invited three experienced speakers, who will explain you how you can secure your future financially by investing little by little. We will show you that it is not difficult to start and everyone can do it!

Our panelists will introduce you to a few ways of investing. The most exciting part relates to a direct effect you can have in promoting and supporting the gender diversity and sustainable investing by adapting Gender Lens and Sustainable Investing. How cool is that?!
