Hamilton Lane Recognized as Top Global Company for the Professional Advancement of Women



City Ave is proud to share that Hamilton Lane, a leading global private markets asset management firm in the district, has been recognized as the global winner of the 2014 Advancing Women Company Award by the Philadelphia Business Journal and The Forum of Executive Women.


Each year, the Philadelphia Business Journal and The Forum of Executive Women, a membership organization for women of noteworthy influence across the Greater Philadelphia area, honor one global organization for the annual Advancing Women Company Award. This award is presented in recognition of the firm that has made a measurable and exemplary impact in advancing the professional growth and development of women in the workplace.


This award recognizes Hamilton Lane’s commitment to empowering women to succeed in the financial services industry. Today, women represent 40% of the employee base and further account for 27% of all senior leadership roles at Hamilton Lane, including several investment committee members and department heads.


Hamilton Lane’s support of its female colleagues is further demonstrated through a variety of specific initiatives, such as the Hamilton Lane Women’s Exchange (“HLWe”) – an internal networking community – as well as a globally-oriented mentoring program. The firm also offers a benefits package and work environment designed to support employees throughout their career and lives. Perhaps most importantly, the firm’s commitment extends beyond benefits and programs, and speaks to the necessity of a workplace that embraces diversity and equality.
