The University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Global Investing (‘NDIGI’) will be holding its sixth annual Women’s Investing Summit (‘WIS’) on Thursday, February 29th and Friday, March 1st, 2024, on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. This two-day summit is a marquee event for NDIGI’s inclusion initiative to promote diversity within asset management. By convening female investment professionals to address a diverse student population on important investment themes and challenges, we hope to educate and inspire students to pursue careers in investment management. We are targeting an audience of over 400 students across disciplines and backgrounds, and many are already actively involved in helping craft content and discussions for WIS.  

WIS’24 will commence on Thursday, February 29th with the final round of our student stock pitch competition. NDIGI, in partnership with the student-led Investment Club and Smart Woman Securities, have created a multi-round stock pitch competition, culminating at WIS. Student teams will present their best ideas to a panel of industry experts who will engage with the students and select the winning pitch.  This year we are once again providing one corporate sponsor the opportunity to partner with NDIGI and the student teams as mentors for the entire process, with corporate name recognition during the duration of the program and at WIS.  

A core tenet of NDIGI is to diversify the profile of stakeholders in the investment industry, and WIS plays an important role in providing students an opportunity to hear exclusively from female investors. We strongly believe that this forum for female-led discussion inspires and encourages female (and other underrepresented) students to enter the field and reinforces to male students that great ideas, wisdom, and experience are not gender specific. We have witnessed the impact in our classrooms and are excited to see it carry over to the industry.
