With the Fourth Industrial Revolution moving at an accelerating pace, women have emerged as significant players in all aspects of the global digital economy – as equal contributors, collaborative leaders, and innovative game-changers. Yet the global community of women remains an under-tapped pool in terms of human capital, women-centric financial products, advisory services and professional communities. As gender diversity and inclusion progresses, the next conundrum becomes nurturing women’s performance potential and retaining their talent in the face of changing expectations towards having global careers, work-life balance and flexibility, a feedback culture, and employer reputation. 

This forum discussed and debated the key issues that ensure all players are well-equipped to face these challenges, as well as keep pace with technological change. Our panellists, all senior and experienced leaders with distinguished careers, discussed how women in the financial services industry can push themselves, their careers and their organisations forward in the new digital economy.
