Pax World Management Corp. has formed the Pax World Women’s Advisory Council, comprised of nationally known leaders and experts on women’s issues.

The council will help Pax World’s efforts to advance women and gender equality through the Pax World Women’s Equity Fund.

“Individually, these women have impressive track records in creating and implementing progressive policies across a range of gender-related issues in this country and around the globe,” said Linda Tarr-Whelan, former ambassador and U.S. representative to the U.N. commission on the status of women. “Together, we know that we will help Pax World in its mission to advance the social and economic status of women.”

The fund invests in companies that promote gender equality by advancing women to top executive positions, have women on the board of directors and in senior management and present positive images of women in their advertising, promotion and marketing.
