In July, PEI Group revealed its annual Women of Influence in Private Markets list 2023, which celebrates 60 inspiring women working in alternatives. For the first episode in this two-part miniseries, we spoke to some of the women featured in the list to see what makes a good leader.

They each offered insight into the current state of private markets and discussed what firms can do to ensure their young, diverse employees feel supported.
