The official launch took place on 8 March 2022 from 16:00-17:00 Geneva time (Central European Time) / 10:00-11:00 New York time.  

The one-hour webinar walked participants through the new report and feature an interactive discussion from exchanges and gender equality experts. Whether viewed narrowly through the lens of the business case or more broadly as a basic human right, gender equality is a key item on the international agenda and there is a general recognition that exchanges play an important role in driving progress toward a more equal, economically prosperous and socially cohesive society.

This new guidance assists exchanges in supporting and advancing “SDG 5 - Gender Equality” in their market and throughout their own operations. It provides an Action Menu with practical suggestions on how to make the financial ecosystem more gender-equal. 

This report is prepared in collaboration with IFC and relied on hundreds of valuable inputs made by the 71 experts from 52 organizations across 34 countries making up the SSE Gender Equality Advisory Group. Special thanks is extended to the Chair of the SSE Gender Equality Advisory Group, Dr. Marlene Street Forrest, Managing Director, Jamaica Stock Exchange. This new guidance is prepared in strategic collaboration with UN Women.
