Dr. Ruth Shaber has carved a unique path from her medical career as an OBGYN to a champion of women’s empowerment in finance and healthcare. As the founder and president of the Tara Health Foundation, she leverages philanthropic investments to enhance women’s health and opportunities through evidence-based programs. Her visionary leadership extends to Rhia Ventures, where as co-founder and board chair, she steers efforts to infuse new capital into reproductive health initiatives.

A published author, Dr. Shaber’s recent work, The XX Edge: Unlocking Higher Returns and Lower Risk, co-authored with Patience-Marime Ball, lays the groundwork for her latest endeavor, The Diverse Investing Collective. This ambitious initiative aims to reshape the investment landscape by increasing assets managed by gender-diverse and racially-diverse teams to 33 percent by the year 2033.
