Women dealmakers: Gaining a seat at the table
13 June 2018
The dealmaking landscape has long seen a shortage of women, due in part to gender inequality and issues involving unequal pay, uneven support, and bias. A wave of trailblazing women is working to change the imbalance, however. Through efforts at law schools and business schools, as well as at their own firms, a number of female dealmakers are showing young women that a career in transactional work is possible — and potentially very rewarding.
In order to highlight the importance of gender diversity at the dealmaking table, Toppan Vintage commissioned Mergermarket to interview five women who are helping lead the way.
Points of discussion include:
- What changes are necessary to bridge the gender gap in the dealmaking industry?
- How is more female representation improving the industry?
- How can the next generation of women prepare for success in a dealmaking career?
