Announcing First-Ever All-Stars Academy in Asia

Tuesday 9th January 2018

The Global Banking Alliance for Women is pleased to announce that our acclaimed All-Stars Academy program will be held for the first time in Asia. The immersive course will take place from March 12-16 in Negombo, Sri Lanka, hosted by IFC, a member of the World Bank Group.

The Academy is a one-of-a-kind learning experience designed to help financial services professionals develop the critical tools they need to serve women well using a holistic value proposition that meets their real-world needs. Through a highly practical and interactive approach, participants gain a thorough understanding of the key elements of a Women’s Market strategy and best practices for supporting implementation. Ultimately, the course guides each participant as they develop concrete pans for executing and evaluating next steps for their programs.

The Academy complements and builds upon the GBA’s world-class peer learning activities, featuring experienced guest lecturers from member banks with thriving Women’s Market programs offering expertise on a variety of subjects related to developing and implementing a strong, sustainable program for women. Instructors for the March Academy comprise experts from such GBA best practice banks as BLC Bank in Lebanon and NatWest, part of the Royal Bank of Scotland, with additional know-how provided by IFC Women’s Market specialists.

Enrollment is open to senior bank executives with responsibility for new business development, marketing or new customer segments. The program is ideal for GBA bank members at the early stage of Women’s Market program development as well as banks that are not yet members but are seriously considering introducing a program. Non-members are selected to attend through a competitive application process.

Interested parties should fill out the All-Stars Academy application no later than Monday, February 19. Admission will be granted on a rolling basis starting in early February. Visit the All-Stars Academy hub for more information.
