Investing in Women leads to Stronger Economic Growth, both more Sustainable and Inclusive
IE University and UN Women raise awareness about the importance of innovative financing and women’s empowerment.
In Latin America and Europe, there is still a gender unequal representation of women in the financial environment, which is causing significant losses in wealth globally. Investing in women leads to stronger economic growth, as it was concluded this Thursday at a virtual conference organized by IE School of Global & Public Affairs and UN Women.
“Investing in women sets a direct path towards gender equality, towards poverty eradication and towards inclusive economic growth that we need after this pandemic,” said Maria Noel Vaeza, UN Women Regional Director for the Americas and the Caribbean, at the beginning of the second seminar on innovative financing and women’s empowerment hosted by IE School of Global & Public Affairs and UN Women.
