Board of Directors

100 Women in Hedge Funds Association, Inc. and 100 Women in Hedge Funds Foundation are managed by a group of volunteer members who are professional women in the industry. The Board of Directors meets regularly to guide member and associate programs, as well as to develop focus for the organization's growth. The Board of Directors also oversees the activities of the committees that manage the organization's affairs. These efforts are coordinated by a Chief Executive Officer.

In Europe, 100 Women in Hedge Funds Ltd. is similarly managed by a group of volunteer members who are responsible for overseeing our activities in London, Paris, Geneva, Zurich, Lugano and Milan.
