Financial institutions are increasingly recognizing the importance of non-financial services (NFS) in empowering women entrepreneurs to succeed. A critical component of these all-important NFS is education opportunities that can fill the business and financial knowledge gaps disproportionately faced by women SME owners and/or operators. Join Joanna Romero, NFS Global Champion, International Finance Corporation; Raya Sbitany, Chief Business Development and Financial Inclusion Officer, Bank of Palestine & Chanda Chime-Katongo, Head of Women's Banking Proposition and Corporate Affairs, Stanbic Bank Zambia Limited for a discussion on providing women clients with access to the education they need to be successful in business - and a look at the strong outcomes both banks and their clients have seen as a result.

This event is organized in partnership with Global Banking Alliance for Women (GBA).
