Gender Balance in Finance: Now is the Time
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.
