What is IMPACT?
IMPACT is a network created for high potential and high achieving females, within Investment Management.
Members all have a common thread; they are smart, ambitious and good company! We aim to help our members achieve career goals through training, workshops and creating supportive relationships. They leave each session feeling motivated and engaged with their peers, across different companies.
