Sturgeon Ventures has been short listed as Specialist Investor of the Year at the 2017 Women in Finance Awards.

The inaugural Women in Finance Awards aims to be the finance industry’s largest diversity initiative, recognising the high-achievers, advocates and role models for women in the sector.

Supported by the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, trade bodies, advisory firms and companies of all sizes, the event will bring together key stakeholders to raise awareness of the sector’s diversity problem as well as celebrating inclusion, leadership and finance excellence.

Sturgeon’s commitment to equality and diversity is an active one and we have signed the Women in Finance charter. By signing the charter, Sturgeon Ventures LLP have committed to implement four recommendations to improve gender diversity in financial services. The charter asks financial firms to support the progression of women into senior roles, set internal and externally reportable targets to improve diversity in the workforce, and publicly report on these goals.

This is a great recognition, for Seonaid and the team.  The Sturgeon team is mainly women and more than 50% working mothers.
