Women’s World Banking, a global leader in advancing financial inclusion for low-income women across the world, is bringing the Making Finance Work for Women Summit to Mumbai, India on 24-25 May 2023. Convening for the first time in person since 2019, the Making Finance Work for Women Summit will provide a space for over 300 leaders in the financial services, investor, philanthropy, policy, and technology communities to come together and discuss innovative ways to economically empower all women through financial inclusion.
“From climate change to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to face an unprecedented number of events negatively impacting the global economy – often with particularly damaging consequences for women,” said Mary Ellen Iskenderian, President and CEO of Women’s World Banking, according to the “Fin Tech Finance News” website.
At this year’s Making Finance Work for Women Summit, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from leaders such as Stephanie Copus Campbell, Australia’s Ambassador for Gender Equality; Soraya Hakuziyaremye, Deputy Governor, National Bank of Rwanda; and Rajesh Bansal, CEO, Reserve Bank Innovation Hub. Panel discussions will touch on everything from finance for displaced women, to gender lens investing, to the role of the ‘S’ in ESG, providing attendees with a space to both better understand why financial power is vital to economic resilience and see what they can do to unshackle women’s financial power.
