After the successful premiere of the FiRe Lecture in December of last year, this year's lecture was held on June 5 by Oliver Spalt 
(Tilburg University, University of Mannheim). Titled "Diskriminierung am Finanzmarkt", Oliver talked about such topics as discrimination against minority fund managers and diverse boards. Drawing in the listeners with questions and by exhaustively addressing their queries, the lecturer managed to captivate the audience.

The FiRe platform wishes to thank Oliver for his thought-provoking an engaging talk. We also thank the Finance Club Graz for their help in organizing the event and the Steiermärkische Sparkasse AG for their sponsoring.

Ines Wöckl (financeclub), Evelyn Bauer (Steiermärkische Sparkasse AG, not pictured) and Stefan Palan open the lecture.
