As the global economy struggles to return to its pre-Covid levels, some of the cracks and fissures have become more apparent than ever, whilst others often go overlooked. Just as the issue of ESG and the need for incentivising through sustainability-linked finance has to many brought about significant change – albeit at a slower pace than might have been hoped – the huge gender inequality in global trade sees the concept of gender-linked finance being touted as a potential solution.

This special free-to-attend webinar – part of GTR‘s Women in Trade Finance initiative – will examine key themes around this topic, from deep-rooted structural gender inequalities to potential advantages when it comes to the sustainability of business models, the desire of banks to engage and concerns over merely paying lip service (‘gender washing’).
