Women’s Association of Venture and Equity (WAVE) Open House - Alternative Investment Careers


Friday, May 7, 2021, 10:00am to 11:00am



"In February 2021, the Career Forum hosted by WAVE - Women’s Association of Venture and Equity WAVE launched a new series of “Open Houses” for our junior members (women considering a career in alternative investments or who are early in their careers). The goal of these sessions is to help facilitate networking and share information.

Harisha Koneru Haigh, Managing Director, Private Investments & Real Assets at the Northwestern University Investment Office, is leading this series and initiative for WAVE.

WAVE would like to invite you to share this complimentary opportunity with your female students interested in exploring the alternative investment space. Details are below and in the attached PDF. If you would like to promote via social media, also attached are images to share on LinkedIn and Instagram.

The next open session will be offered on Friday, May 7 at 9:00 am – 10:00 am CDT/10:00 am – 11:00 am EDT. The format will be an open session where Harisha will answer questions.

For the third Friday of each month, the plan is to offer six 10-minute slots for more focused interaction, on a first come, first serve basis. There are a couple slots remaining for the May 21 session and appointments for the 10-minute slots can be made by contacting Danielle Fraser, WAVE Coordinator at admin@wavecareerforum.org.

For upcoming Open Houses, WAVE will invite guest speakers to help share various aspects of the industry. Please share any topics about which you would like to explore further.
