download 10 pages

Women represent half the global population, yet many face persistent barriers to accessing and using financial services. This brief, which draws on knowledge from the FinEquity community of practice, outlines why financial service providers (FSPs) should advance gender equality in financial inclusion and how they can approach this process.

The brief highlights the financial and sustainability benefits that FSPs can realize by focusing on women as customers, employees, and leaders. It then synthesizes resources from three FinEquity knowledge guides to provide practical steps and tools for FSPs to enhance gender diversity and leadership across their institutions, advance the use of gender data and analysis, and adopt a gender-intelligent approach to product design and delivery.
