100WF addresses the under-representation of women in investment roles and seeks to evolve the public perception of what an investment expert looks like. It is our hope that by increasing the visibility of today’s female investment managers, we are also motivating the next generation of female investment talent to aspire to these roles.

Global FundWomen Week
The largest global gathering of asset allocators and female investment managers
Since 2014, 100WF has hosted investment conferences for female fund managers and the broad community of institutional investment allocators to engage with one another and explore business opportunities.
In 2020, we took this concept virtual and created a global, weeklong event of targeted introductions and roundtable sessions. Now named Global FundWomen Week (GFWW), the event provides:
- Timely, relevant and global thought leadership programming
- “Spotlight” mini-presentations hosted by conference participants on high-interest topics
