The Fifth Annual WAVE Women in Alternative Investments Career Forum is the industry leading event to recruit and source the next generation of women in finance.

The objective of the Career Forum is to broaden the funnel of women into the alternatives industry and provide a setting where candidates can learn, engage, and network with industry veterans across a broad spectrum of careers. WAVE is deeply committed to advancing diversity, equity and inclusion efforts within the alternatives industry. 

2021 FORMAT:

The 2021 Career Forum will be a virtual event held over two days on Thursday, October 14th and Friday, October 15th. Thursday is a preaccess session for the WAVE Scholars to learn and share about the industry. Friday’s events will include panels, roundtable discussions, expo booths and networking opportunities for all attendees.


WAVE expects 1,000+ attendees, approximately half of whom will be Forum Scholars, and the other half will be industry professionals. Industry professionals are from organizations within the alternative investment industry, including private equity, venture capital, real estate, credit, real assets, hedge funds and investment banks that are seeking to recruit and network with enthusiastic, qualified and highly educated women.

Forum Scholar applicants will have educational and professional backgrounds that range from undergraduate through 3 years post graduate school and include analysts and associates from alternative investment firms, investment banks and management consulting firms, accountants, attorneys, operators and marketing professionals. All Forum Scholars will be prescreened through a rigorous application process. In 2020, there were over 500 Forum Scholars from 70+ universities throughout North America and Europe and all submitted resumes were included in the Career Forum Resume Book, which is shared with all Career Forum sponsors.

Applications close by end of the day on Friday, September 3.
