IDEAL OUTCOMES

    • A plurality of financial institutions and systems (including alternate models) are developed, and they respond to the needs of diverse women in an inclusive manner to enable access to financial products and services as well as wealth creation
    • Women occupy management and leadership positions across sectors in the economy
    • Women (adults and youth) are financially savvy and have developed the capacity to engage in wealth creation
    • All public, private and non-governmental institutions demonstrate commitment to change by making pledges, which lead to broad impact
    • Dynamic networks are in place and they create a basis for generating opportunities for women to be supported and mentored
    • Social and digital media drives the visibility of the initiative and amplifies women’s voices
