The Global Banking Alliance for Women is extremely pleased to announce that two regional All-Stars Academy events will be held in 2017. The first All-Stars Academy will take place in the Dominican Republic at the end of May, hosted by Banco BHD León and sponsored by the Inter-American Development Bank and FMO, the Dutch Development Bank. The second All-Stars Academy will be held June 19-22 in Livingstone, Zambia, hosted by the Bank of Zambia.
Building on the tremendous success of our first All-Stars Academy in June of this year, these Academies will consolidate and expand GBA’s footprint in Latin America and Africa.
The All-Stars Academy is a 3.5-day skill-building immersion program that fills the critical need in the financial services community to target women as a distinct market. The GBA All-Stars Academy complements and builds upon the GBA’s existing world-class peer learning activities, featuring experienced guest lecturers from member banks with thriving Women’s Market programs who offer their expertise on a variety of subjects related to developing and implementing a holistic value proposition for women.
Participants in the All-Stars Academy gain an understanding of the key elements of a Women’s Market strategy and best practices for supporting implementation. Through a highly practical and interactive approach, each participant develops a plan for executing and evaluating next steps for their programs. 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.
