"A high-level briefing and Q&A focusing on private equity career opportunities for diverse, high-potential talent – featuring leaders of private equity firm Atlantic Street Capital
More opportunities for candidates of diverse backgrounds are emerging in private equity than ever before. Firms are recruiting from increasingly gender- and racially diverse MBA and other business programs, and are hiring high-potential talent from a broad range of financial services backgrounds and experiences.
In this lively and candid discussion and Q&A, panelists ranging from the CEO of Atlantic Street Capital to younger talent who joined the firm early in their career, will discuss private equity opportunities for board service and flexible work arrangements. Topics will include:
• How diversity on deal teams improves the way PE firms do business.
• How firms are adapting to younger generations’ demand for flexibility in where, when, and how they work, especially since Covid.
• How you can best make the transition from another career into private equity.
• How private equity can be a fast-track to board service.
