The financial inclusion of women has come to the forefront of AFI’s policy discourse and practice since the adoption of the Denarau Action Plan (DAP) in 2016 at the Global Policy Forum in Fiji.
The study that informed this special report aims to explore the current practices, gaps, and progress in institutional gender diversity among selected AFI members and to identify barriers that prevent progress in this area. It also seeks to recommend actions and initiatives that can promote gender diversity at the institutional level, including in leadership positions. This special report serves as AFI’s first step to drive gender diversity within member institutions, as committed under the DAP’s Action #10, with the overall objective of closing the persistent gender gap in financial inclusion. The current practices, barriers, and recommendations offer a starting point from which AFI members can devise solutions to increase gender diversity within their institutions. Download the report
