Program Description

Using Data to Close the Gender Gap


The Global Findex 2021 revealed a reduction in the gender gap from 9% to 6% in access to formal financial services in developing economies. This is a positive indication that changes in mindset and practice are shifting the norms.

The speakers from Mennonite Economic Development Associates, MiCredito, and Toronto Centre will discuss:

  • their respective experiences, insights, and strategies to deepen women’s access to finance;
  • the value of gender-disaggregated data collection and analysis for financial supervisors and financial service providers; and
  • how to further close the gender gap in finance. 

Simultaneous translation will be available in French and Spanish.
