In brief: Spain’s gender diversity baseline

In the upper echelons of Spanish private equity and venture capital, just 14% of investment executives are female.

Spain, like other markets around the world, has a problem with gender diversity in its private equity and venture capital industries. This is confirmed by a study conducted by Level 20, the organisation that promotes gender diversity in PE and VC, and Nina Capital, a Spanish healthcare and technology VC.

The report’s authors write: “The study revealed, for the first time, the severity of the gender diversity issue in Spanish PE/VC and can be used as a baseline for improvement. We found, unsurprisingly, that women are underrepresented in the Spanish PE/VC industry. In aggregate, women represent 30 percent of the workforce.”
