Here at Premier Crowdfunding, we consider gender equality a long-term goal, and we take steps every day to reach it. Diversity is an important facet of any company, as it helps us build relationships, understand different viewpoints, and come up with creative solutions.
Historically, the world of investing has been a “boys club”, and to a lesser extent it still is today. In honor of International Women’s Day, we would like to recognize pioneering women investors such as Geraldine Weiss, who in 1966 was told that no one would take her advice unless it came from a man, and Muriel Siebert, whose brokerage firm became the first woman-owned member of the NYSE. You can read more about these impressive women, as well other women currently excelling in the industry, in the article “7 Outstanding Female Investors” on Investopedia.
To learn more about the importance of diversity in the workplace, we recommend this illuminating Forbes article by Morgan Simone. In it she describes her experience as a woman in a male-dominated field, how she does her part to foster diversity, and why she believes being a minority in her industry helps her to be a better investor.
Happy International Women’s Day! Invest with us in quality real estate projects today to join our inclusive team of hard-working women and men. We wish the best to you and your families.
Charlotte, Alison, Holly, Julie, and the rest of the Premier Crowdfunding Team.
