On the 20th of October KvinnoKapital, in cooperation with LGT Capital Partners and Impactus Partners held it’s first virtual event on the topic of “Diversity and Inclusion in the Investment Due Diligence Process”.
After a short introduction by Hanna Edström, LGT Capital Partners, Elena Espinoza from UN PRI discussed their upcoming Diversity, Equity and Inclusion framework.

The panel was moderated by Ulrika Robertsson, Impactus Partners. The topics ranged from questions around “Why should DNI be included in the DD process?” to more specifics around what type of questions to ask and what we as investors can consider as good today. We have created a summary with some key take-away’s that you can access here.
