2019 GBA Summit Logo

The Global Banking Alliance for Women is pleased to bring our annual Summit to Paris for the first time as we explore the benefits to women, organizations and economies of “Building Resilience Through Inclusion.” GBA member and first global insurance brand AXA will host the event, which takes place June 17-19 at AXA headquarters.

A series of engaging, interactive sessions across the three-day period will showcase the most effective solutions from the world of financial services and beyond that are helping to enable inclusive growth for women and build sustainable economies. The 2019 Summit will explore such critical topics 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
  • Boosting business sustainability through workforce gender diversity and inclusion

The Summit will open with a  convening of CEOs and c-suite changemakers from top global companies to share their business solutions for women’s economic empowerment. The leaders will further pledge to make gender equity a priority at their organizations, with the GBA compiling the outputs of the forum into a communiqué that will be issued to the G7 in a demonstration of the enabling environment the private sector can create to support inclusive growth.
