The Daily Brief Mentions Sallie Krawcheck's Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund
Pax Ellevate Management is encouraging the companies in its Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund (PXWEX) to sign onto the Women’s Empowerment Principles, a joint initiative of the United Nations Global Compact and UN Women. The Principles include a set of guidelines for empowering women in the workplace, marketplace and community, Pax Ellevate says. The letters to Pax Ellevate companies are going out in conjunction with the Women’s Empowerment Principles 2015 Annual Event, taking place today and Wednesday in New York. The event will feature speakers including Sallie Krawcheck, chair of Pax Ellevate, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Krawcheck launched the Pax Ellevate Global Women’s Index Fund last June as a way to invest in top-rated companies aimed at advancing women.
