Panel: Will Your Leadership Teams Sink or Swim in Storms Ahead?
June 12th | 2:15 PM ET

The quality of portfolio company management is the reason most cited for deal success and the second most-cited reason for deal failure. Having the wrong leadership, particularly during a downturn, can come with a heavy price. As fears of a slowdown loom, how do you know your management teams are prepared?

Panel: Culture: Deal-Maker or Deal-Breaker?
June 12th | 3:00 PM ET

To win the talent game, private equity firm cultures are evolving. We will join women leaders from across the private equity landscape to discuss the importance of being intentional, shaking up the norms, and creating inclusive cultures where employees are engaged and valued. How can firms and their portfolio company leaders successfully collaborate on a talent strategy? How are companies developing meaningful and effective DEI policies? This panel will highlight and celebrate the success stories of women who are trailblazing in talent.
