Women in Finance

  • Monday 28/10/2019

    In most European countries, women represent around fifty percent of all bank employees. This is surprising for most people, as the banking world, at the same time, still has a very masculine image. And indeed, when looking at the gender mix at the different hierarchical levels, we see that at Senior Management level less than 20% are women. Still, a large part of the financial world, especially in Belgium, did not yet act significantly to improve gender balance. It is to help implement this change that Women in Finance was launched, a year ago.

    The topic of gender diversity, and of diversity and inclusion in general, is not new, on the contrary. Today, even more than before, it continues to be very pertinent and important.
    But why?
    In my experience, the topic of inclusive leadership and diversity has gained in importance because the challenges facing the financial sector can be best addressed by balanced and diverse teams.
