<b>(Space is limited)</b>
Group workshops focused on connecting diverse and women managers with LPs from across the industry. In true Consortium fashion, we continue to value the importance of connectivity and networking and have expanded the historically 1-on-1 VIP Connect sessions to group discussions. Participants can hear from LPs on their programs, engage in dialogue, and connect through information exchange.
