Today is International Women’s Day and to celebrate, Women in ETFs (WE) will be ringing the bells at stock exchanges around the world.
WE will lead 15 of the 34 stock exchange bell ringings. The organization will also host speakers to present the business case for women’s economic empowerment.
This is the second year in a row Women in ETFs will be ringing stock exchange bells for International Women’s Day.
The organization is partnering with five other organizations in a growing momentum behind gender equality: UN Global Compact, UN Women, the Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) Initiative, IFC, and the World Federation of Stock Exchanges.
Their aim of “Ring the Bell for Gender Equality” is to raise awareness about the business case for women’s economic empowerment and the opportunities for the private sector to advance gender equality and sustainable development.
