“In 2019, women made up only 20% of total representation on executive committees of major financial services firms globally and 23% of executive boards of banks.”(*)
Let's change this.
Whilst we are seeing some signs of progress on gender parity in the financial industry, there is still plenty of room for improvement. We want to help drive the change by encouraging, through open conversations with banking and finance leaders, the implementation of actions and policies that will foster an industry with exciting, equal and fair opportunities for all its participants.
Euromoney’s Finance is Female virtual event series brings together influencers from the global banking industry who are setting the agenda to tackle gender challenges and address unconscious bias and stereotypes around what a leader should look like, so their organisations become workplaces where women can achieve their full potential.

Diversity and Inclusion in the financial sector – the time for change?
Covid-19 and the new work-from-home environment has afforded a greater conversation about gender imbalance, while the global protests against racism have shone a brighter spotlight on racial inequity. Euromoney asks the C-suite and D&I leaders within the financial sector how their firms are examining their diversity and inclusion policies, practices and programs for greater impact and systemic change?
Join Nandita Bakhshi, President & CEO at Bank of the West, BNP Paribas, Adebola Osakwe, Global Head of Inclusion & Diversity at KKR, and Brandee McHale alongside Euromoney’s ESG Contributing Editor, Helen Avery at 2.30pm BST on 9th July.
