The Landscape

Women’s Economic Empowerment, Financial Inclusion, and Gender Lens Investing are all used interchangeably to try and name the worldwide movement that is creating a paradigm shift by bridging the gap between gender and finance. The newly inheriting are beginning to demand answers from systems that are unsustainable, inefficient, top-heavy, and bettering for a few at the expense of many.
