Banking On Gender Equality

Banking On Gender Equality

  • 08 Dec, 2017

The discussion paper ‘Banking on Gender Equality’, written by Marian G. Ingrams, explores gender-related risks and opportunities in Financial Institutions (FIs). It endeavours to build conversation on women’s advancement as a critical element of sustainable finance, which is within FIs’ purview and responsibility. This paper identifies the four ways FIs impact gender equality: through the FI’s governance approach; workplace hiring and employee support practices; engagement and protection of female retail customers; and mitigation of harms to women caused by FIs’ loans and investments.
