Code of Conduct

KvinnoKapital is organised exclusively for networking, educational and charitable purposes. The purpose of KvinnoKapital is to facilitate an environment enabling women in asset management and related industries to achieve their career and personal goals. The asset management and related industries have come a long way in gender equality, however it has still room for improvement and women as well as men have the power and knowledge to influence and close the gap in the market.

This Code of Conduct has been compiled by input from KvinnoKapital members and written by its board. The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to set the tone for all KvinnoKapital activities, engagements and communications and by doing so create an atmosphere of active participation and mutual respect whilst being inclusive. The Code of Conduct applies to all KvinnoKapital members and its guests, as well as from time to time participating donors and/ or speakers.
