Women Financing a Resilient Asia: 6th Annual MIGA Gender Leadership Award

live.worldbank.org
Gender Event 2021

In celebration of International Women’s Day, MIGA hosted its 6th Annual Gender Leadership Award (formerly Gender CEO Award) virtual event, titled ‘Women Financing a Resilient Asia’, on March 8, 2021. The Award recognizes a leader who has a proven track record of seeking to further the cause of women’s advancement and gender equality while contributing to the World Bank Group’s twin goals of reducing poverty and boosting shared prosperity.

MIGA is delighted to recognize Audra Low, Chief Executive Officer & Executive Director, Clifford Capital, as this year's awardee. Ms. Low has shown her commitment to furthering gender equality in the workplace, particularly in front line roles/functions where women’s representation has historically been lacking. Ms. Low’s efforts set an example for women in the finance sector, who have been significantly underrepresented in executive positions, representing less than 2% of bank CEOs and holding less than 20% of board seats of banks worldwide.

Follow our event on social media with #GenderLeadershipAward and #IWD2021.
