The Global Banking Alliance for Women is thrilled to announce that we will be co-chairing the Women 20 (W20) Financial Inclusion group along with the Alliance for Financial Inclusion under the Argentinian presidency of the G20.
The W20 is the official G20 engagement group dedicated to promoting gender inclusiveness and gender equality as an integral part of the G20 process. In a broad dialogue using digital tools, expert meetings and roundtables as well as the W20 Summit, the W20 joins the global experiences of women representing the civil society, private sector, entrepreneurs and academia/think tanks from all G20 countries to develop and formulate strong policy recommendations that will foster women’s economic empowerment. These recommendations are then submitted to the G20 heads of state and government.
As co-chair of Financial Inclusion, GBA will act as a knowledge/content partner to support the financial inclusion workstream, including working to further establish the business case for commercial actors to target the Women’s Market. The co-chairs will also collaborate on policy analysis and recommendations, and participate in W20 events throughout the year.
