In what ways can organizations around the world build their resilience by including more women – both as customers and as staff? And how can women’s economic inclusion help create more sustainable economies? The 2019 Annual GBA Summit will seek to answer these questions and more through a series of engaging panels and interactive sessions. We invite GBA members and other financial services practitioners, government officials and thought leaders to join us at this can’t-miss event June 17-19 at AXA headquarters in Paris.

First-Annual GBA CEO Forum

The Summit will open with a special session featuring c-suite changemakers from top global companies who will share their business solutions for women’s economic empowerment. The leaders will discuss how they are championing women’s inclusion using advanced business case examples, candidly discuss challenges and solutions, and publicly comment on specific goals their organizations have to support economic opportunities for women. The GBA will compile the outputs of the forum into a communiqué that will be issued to the G7 under France’s presidency, in a demonstration of the enabling environment the private sector can create to support inclusive growth.

GBA Best Practice Sessions

The GBA’s acclaimed Summit best practice sessions will follow the Forum, exploring solutions from the world of financial services and beyond in such critical areas as:

  • Financial services solutions for women’s key life moments
  • Strengthening women’s financial capacity to build lifetime resilience
  • New Women’s Market opportunities – from women of impact to women in the workplace
  • Creating gender lens investment opportunities
