PDF programme available here

Both private and public sectors are still far away from being truly gender-inclusive and diversified, which raises the questions of the barriers to further diversity and possible private and policy initiatives.
This event includes three presentations featuring different sectors and perspectives, including on the limited gender diversity in the management of Europe’s largest financial institutions; the rise of female leaders in international financial institutions, and whether inclusive political leadership can deliver more sustainable governance.
Speakers include journalists from Reuters, EUI research fellows in history and inclusive leadership. The panel discussion will be led by former FBF Director Elena Carletti.
