Women’s Hedge Fund Group Lauded For Five Years’ Service

Feb 5 2007 | 10:39am ET

In recognition of five years’ of tireless philanthropic effort, 100 Women in Hedge Funds is getting some well-deserved praise. Today is 100 Women In Hedge Funds Day in New York, recognizing the group, which has raised some $10 million for women’s health, education and mentoring, and which has grown to more than 5,000 members worldwide, for its work.

And tomorrow, the organization’s leaders, including co-founders Dana Hall of D.E. Shaw & Co. and Lehman Brothers’ Carol Kim, will ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. 

“We wouldn’t have made it five months without the tireless commitment of the many individuals and organizations that have led these programs over the past five years—as speakers, hosts, Angels, donor, advisors and volunteer board and committee members,” Hall said.

In addition to this week’s activities, 100 Women are holding 14 other events to mark the anniversary, culminating in a celebration at Sotheby’s on March 1 and a presentation at Lehman Brothers on March 7.
