Gender diversity: the future of the financial sector
Women in Finance advocates for equal opportunities for everyone in the financial sector. Young and old. Man, woman and X. Each with their own strengths and their personal way of looking at the world. That is what makes up the strength of a company. It is exactly what leads to better insights and decisions.
