#FinEquity2021 Annual Meeting
In recent years, advancing gender equality and women’s economic empowerment has been high on the agenda for financial inclusion stakeholders. Given the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on women, strong gender-diverse teams within the financial services sector are needed more than ever to drive innovative solutions that ensure women are not left further behind.
Our #FinEquity2021 Annual Meeting of the global FinEquity community convened by CGAP showcased proven solutions and ongoing efforts related to increasing the gender balance in the financial services industry, conducting gender analysis, and designing for women’s inclusion – taking both a global and a regional lens.
A hearty thank you to all who joined us for this year’s meeting. We enjoyed a packed few days of productive, inspiring conversations and walked away with deeper insights, proven solutions and many new connections with global members of the women’s financial inclusion community.

"Being a gender focal point/lead can be a lonely journey. We may have a long path to walk but at least if we know we are walking together, our steps can be a little lighter and the walk a little easier."

"When all is said and done, the bottom line is a better life for all. It is only when women are empowered that we will have a better world."

"One key takeaway from the #FinEquity2021 discussions is to involve men when engaging all actors in financial systems and to address gender norms to build more equitable financial systems that facilitate women’s social, economic and digital inclusion."
A special word of thanks to our outstanding regional co-hosts. Without their contributions, we would not have been able to achieve such meaningful and productive regional sessions.
Another big thank you to our powerhouse speakers this year. See a detailed roster here.
