The Annual Summit is the Alliance’s flagship event and one of the world’s foremost knowledge exchanges that focuses on what institutions can do to champion the female economy. At the Summit, participants learn directly from practitioners and subject matter experts, share best practices on how to tap the female economy, and discuss the latest innovations and approaches that are having a real impact on women and on the companies that serve them.
The Summit is attended by commercial banks, fintechs, insurance companies, payment companies, investors, VCs, asset managers, telcos, as well as thought leaders, policymakers and development finance specialists.
Pre-pandemic the Summit was held in person, and in 2020 and 2021 it went online, enabling us to significantly increase our reach, however, with the downside of not being able to meet in person and missing the human connection. With that in mind, the Summit 2022 was back in person and took place November 2 and 3 in London, hosted by Alliance member NatWest. It also included a hybrid component whereby the main sessions were streamed online so that a wider global audience can attend.
The 1 1/2-day event was packed with thought provoking discussions, new know-how, and engaging, interactive sessions.
