Level 20

Founded by a group of 12 senior women in the private equity industry, including Alexandra Hess of Cinven, Level 20 is a not for profit organisation which aims to inspire women to join and succeed in the private equity industry, and provide greater representation for women at all levels of the industry.

Core to Level 20's ethos is the belief that gender diversity at all, and in particular senior levels in the private equity industry, will lead to improved investment performance.

Level 20 plans to achieve its vision through a career mentoring programme, a formalised network and a commitment to philanthropy. Alexandra leads the mentoring programme for Level 20 with two of the co-founders.
