Recently I had the honor of presenting at the PowerShift Conference on Women in the World Economy, hosted by the Oxford University Saïd Business School. PowerShift was hands down the most inspiring conference I have ever attended, largely because it drew together companies, NGOs and academics in a way which not only gave participants a comprehensive overview of the current status quo of women and finance but also encouraged them to envision what the future might look like.
However, this macro-level view also exposed some of the holes in current thinking, holes that need to be filled in order to achieve a truly strong ecosystem for women’s financial inclusion.
