Mark your calendars for the 2015 Annual Summit of the Global Banking Alliance for Women, to be held September 29 to October 1 and hosted by Itaú Unibanco at their headquarters in São Paulo, Brazil. The event will bring together bankers, policymakers and thought leaders to network and discuss best practices around capturing the female economy.

Save the Date: 2015 GBA Annual Summit

The Alliance’s 2014 Summit in Washington, D.C., was our largest ever, bringing together more than 200 attendees from 34 countries to exchange information and ideas, and make new connections. We expect our 2015 Annual Summit to be just as productive.

According to a recent poll of Alliance members on what Best Practice topics they would like to learn more about, the top areas were:

  • Customer Insights: What the Alliance knows about women customers
  • Business Case: Strengthening data and building the business case
  • Customer Advocacy: Key drivers of Net Promoter Score
  • Program Implementation: Roles and responsibilities from the C-Suite to relationship managers, and unconscious bias training for staff
  • Segment Value Propositions for very small and start-up businesses, high-growth entrepreneurs, the unbanked and the mass market, and by lifecycle need
  • Digital marketing and social media strategies
  • Beyond the Bank: What needs to be in place to support women-owned SMEs.

Apart from engaging Best Practice panels and networking events, the 2015 event will feature a Study Tour to host Itaú Unibanco and a first-of-its-kind Global Data Symposium, discussing the challenges and opportunities of banks sharing top-line data on their outreach to women and women’s contribution to their bottom line.

GBA is enormously grateful to our host, Itaú Unibanco. We will announce further details, including keynote speakers and panel sessions, as they become available.
