CONCEPT NOTES WOMEN2030?
Women remain disproportionately excluded from the formal financial system. According to the 2014 Global Findex, more than one billion women are still excluded, and there is a 9% gender gap in account ownership across developing economies. While there has been promising progress towards full financial inclusion in recent years, this gender gap has remained unchanged since 2011. A gender-sensitive business environment is part of the solution and can play an enabling role towards addressing women’s financial inclusion.
This dialogue on gender and finance will provide an overview of some of the key themes that affect the financial inclusion of women today. Featuring views from leading experts and duty bearers, it will highlight the important role that financial services can play in the economic empowerment of women. The dialogue will discuss challenges in achieving gender equality in financial inclusion – but will also showcase new ideas, tools and resources that support inclusive financial services with a focus on women.
