GBA Governing Board

The GBA is managed by a Governing Board made up of representatives from our member institutions and other individuals experienced in and committed to increasing women’s economic empowerment. The Board works to ensure the Alliance is effectively serving our membership’s needs, and helps us to expand our network of like-minded institutions intent on capturing the Women’s Market, sharing best practices and opening up access to financial services for women around the world.
