This workshop gave us the opportunity to dig into a few resources featured in our recent Gender Data and Analysis Guide. We were joined by the Financial Alliance for Women, a network of financial organizations dedicated to championing the female economy, advocates for focusing on the women’s market by quantifying the market opportunity and financial benefits for financial service providers in, Global Business Case Tool for Financial Services Providers. We also heard examples of how good gender data and analysis can help FSPs to understand the women’s market and to understand whether they are achieving product goals related to outreach and usage.
This dynamic webinar gave us a chance to hear from the participants of our CoLab as they share lessons learned about how to diagnose gender norms, their findings and how they plan to use these findings in their own effort to advance women’s financial inclusion and economic empowerment.
FinEquity’s Catherine Highet spoke with Kiran Agarwal Todi of Ashv in India and Nirza Fumo of Women in Business (WIN) in Mozambique, discussing their use of gender-intelligent design to shape financial services to better suit women’s needs.
