Celebrating International Women’s Month

RockCreek CEO Afsaneh Beschloss interviews General Motors CEO Mary Barra at the Council of International Investors conference.

This International Women’s Month comes at a crucial time. After decades of progress, women’s social and economic opportunities have been set back during the Covid-19 pandemic and global unrest. Now that hard-fought progress faces yet more threats, from the conflict in Ukraine, vaccine inequities, and rising economic uncertainty. RockCreek sees this moment as a challenge to which we and others must rise.

As a firm founded, owned, and led by women and diverse team members with over 75 percent diversity, prioritizing inclusion is an integral part of our daily lives and work. Our research is consistent with that of academia and the industry and has shown that diversity leads to better decision-making, results, and performance. Since inception, we have invested more than $2.9 billion in women-owned and led firms.

We commend the intelligent, thoughtful women across the globe who have carried the weight of Covid-19 at work and at home, and who now lead us into a period of recovery, war, and uncertainty. And we thank our partners for being allies in the fight for gender equity in 2022 and beyond.
