“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.

VIRTUAL PANELS

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?

Moderated by Euromoney's ESG Contributing Editor, Helen Avery, our special guest speakers include Nandita Bakhshi, President & CEO at Bank of the West, BNP Paribas, Adebola Osakwe, Global Head of Inclusion & Diversity at KKR, and Brandee McHale, Head of Community Investing and Development at Citi.

Gender balance in a post-COVID world

Our first Finance is Female virtual event explores the impact of the coronavirus on gender balance in the banking and finance industry and how we can grasp this opportunity to reshape our culture for the better. The financial sector has made great strides in driving diversity, equality and inclusion, but gender balance, particularly at the top, remains a sticking point.

Moderated by Euromoney magazine’s Sustainable Finance Editor, Helen Avery, our special guest speakers include Amanda Pullinger, CEO, 100 Women in Finance, Mark Freed, CEO, E2W, and Mandy DeFilippo, Managing Director and Global Head of Risk Management for Fixed Income & Commodities, Morgan Stanley.
