Professional women should hold at least half the executive positions in banking, Fintech and financial services today but this is far from the case in the real world. The cost to shareholders and other stakeholders is both incalculable and indefensible.
Enlightened banks, fintechs and other financial services companies are already publicly pledging their commitment to the achievement of gender equality in their ESG goals – while governments and regulators everywhere continue to set ever-increasing minimum requirements.
This Council aims to help redress the gender imbalance by helping banks and fintechs to maximise the potential of their women professionals at all levels of management.
Yes, more and more women are becoming CEOs of banks and financial institutions including Citi in the US, NatWest in the UK and BNP Personal Finance in France. But these are exceptions.
Devised by senior women executives and facilitated by Lafferty Group, this Council enables women executives to capitalise on their vast potential by sharing knowledge, expertise and experience through live international conferences, webinars, special interest groups, newsletters, online training programmes, management development programmes, and more.
Lafferty Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Alia Sabboury as EMEA Ambassador for the Global Council for Women in Retail banking and Fintech. With a distinguished background as a retail banker and a specialisation in the SME sector, Alia will work closely with Michael Lafferty, the Lafferty CEO to help members share knowledge, expertise and experience through confidential meetings, newsletters and management development programmes.
