Investing with a Gender Lens is not new. Many of us have been at this for a while now. And yet 2023 is the year we stand to make significant progress in bringing more balance to both our finances and to corporate America and beyond.

Gender lens investing is an approach to investment due diligence that seeks to incorporate gender considerations into investment decision-making.

Looking for gender balance can literally entail counting the women in the C-suite, or on a board of directors.

Investing with an eye for equality, as a way to enhance portfolio decisions, means incorporating women as important factors for running a company–both because these are important societal goals, and because diversity and inclusion can be de-risking factors.
