What is AQR Qualversations?

Introducing Qualversations

AQR’s new podcast series designed to expand perspectives and deliver thought-provoking opinion pieces.

It is shocking to think that only 23% of business leaders in research are women. This needs to change! So, in the first few episodes of Qualversations AQR Board Member Debbie Newbould has interviewed inspiring women from outside our world of research to discuss women and leadership.
