The covid-19 pandemic has highlighted an array of economic inequalities, with the economic fall-out disproportionately affecting most vulnerable groups of our society. The panel will discuss the gender-related consequences of the crisis, focusing on the economic impact and policy responses.
Gina Omolon, partner at Mazars, will participate in the event “Global economic crisis and gender equality” organised by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF) and sponsored by Mazars on Wednesday November 25.
She will present her expertise alongside Fernanda Nechio, Deputy Governor at Banco Central do Brasil and Ratna Sahay, Deputy Director, Monetary and Capital Markets Department among other speakers. The discussion will be around exacerbated gender inequalities in the workplace, and possibilities to manage them at company and state level. Speakers will also outline opportunities for public and private investors to support these initiatives through sustainable financing measures and the growing role of fintech in promoting these measures.
Earlier this year, Mazars and OMFIF published the seventh annual Gender Balance Index, which tracks the presence of men and women in senior positions at central banks, sovereign funds and public pension funds.
