Gender Lens Investing Networking Session

  • 13 Oct 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Webinar: Instructions will be emailed to registrants


Registration is closed

Join us for an informal networking session to discuss topics raised during our recent  webinar on "Bridging the Financial Inclusion Gap for Women-Led Businesses."  We will recap some of the key take-aways from the panel and invite attendees to join break-out sessions where they can provide their perspective or share their specific questions on some of the themes below:

  • What are the gaps faced by women-led businesses in terms of access to financial services?
  • What segments are particularly underserved and why? 
  • How does access to a broad set of non-financial services specifically designed for female entrepreneurs (financial education, health, business and digital training) addresses some of these gaps?
  • What are some of the key reasons that should incentivize financial institutions and investors to focus more on worm-led businesses?

This new working group will have a 12-month tenure with 2-3 events occurring every quarter consisting of:

  • Panels of experts in the gender lens investing field, to discuss their practitioner experience on a particular GLI topic 

  • Subsequent working group discussions – moderated by ICF Board members and occurring approximately 2-4 weeks after the panel – where our members can dive more deeply into what was discussed during the expert-level panel 

  • Ad hoc networking sessions for our GLI working group members, panelists, and ICF Board members to meet more people working in the industry on a more informal basis 

Participation in this GLI Working Group is free for all active ICF Members.  Non-members of ICF are welcome to join one GLI Working Group event for the standard event price of $15, but will then be asked to become an ICF and GLI Working Group member in order to attend future sessions.

Login instructions for this Zoom videoconference will be emailed after your registration is completed.
