About the Event
In the context of the SDGs, the implementation of the SDG 5 relating to gender equality and women empowerment is lagging, with the gender gap made worse during the pandemic, and the financial industry still struggling to improve its organizational models accordingly. As gender lens investing has gained momentum during the last years, integrating gender-based aspects throughout the investment process has become an essential approach to advance gender equality.
During our webinar, Tim Radjy, chair of the Gender Lens Initiative for Switzerland (GLIS) and managing partner of Alphamundi will give us insights into impact investing and financial products with a gender lens. He will also introduce the GLIS research focusing on the market of gender lens financial products in Switzerland. Finally, we will extend an invitation to our attendees to participate during this research.
Join us on this webinar to learn more about GLIS, how gender lens strategies can foster gender equality, and how you can contribute to it.
