For an industry that prides itself on mastering risk management, finding value and uncovering arbitrage opportunities, I think the financial services sector is falling flat. Why? Because most firms are overlooking one of the biggest investment opportunities ever: women.
Gender equality is now a top priority for 78% of companies (up from 56% in 2012), yet less than half of employees feel we’re doing enough. While the pay gap (for equal work) is closing, the promotion gap isn’t, leaving women making 76 cents on the dollar compared to men. And the gender gap isn’t expected to close for another 170 years. That’s too long to wait!
It's International Women’s Day and we are being called on to #BeBoldForChange. Why, you might ask, is a middle-aged, white male CEO writing about International Women’s Day? The truth is that I believe I am part of the problem, and I’m determined to do something about it.

Elham Ghassemzadeh, Vice President of Product Management at NetSuite, shares her experience of attending the Grace Hopper Celebration
There’s a special feeling when you walk into the Anita Borg Institute Grace Hopper Conference. As a woman working in technology, usually when you walk into a room, you're in the minority. Here it's the complete opposite. Simply put, it's a different feeling when you are with other technically-minded women and think, “I’m not alone.” It gives you such a boost of confidence and a sense of camaraderie. It’s a genuinely warm feeling to experience.
Senior Director of US & Corporate Human Resources at NetSuite was recently given HR Symposium’s 2016 Award of Excellence for her work in leading the Women in NetSuite (WIN) initiative
Eighteen months ago, women represented 34 percent of employees at NetSuite, but less than 10 percent of leadership.
Recognizing that disparity, not just at NetSuite but in the tech community as a whole, a cross-functional team of women formed Women in NetSuite (WIN) to advance the professional development of women at NetSuite through recruitment, sponsorship, networking, education and advocacy.
