November 12, 2021

The panel explored:

  • Gender-aware, technology-enable financial sector supervision as an important means to achieving female financial inclusion.
  • The importance of explicitly identifying and considering the barriers women face to address the financial inclusion access gap. 
  • Keeping pace with the rapid advances in technology in general, and especially for financial services providers (FSPs). 
  • The business case for sex-disaggregated data (SDD) as a tool for both supervisors and FSPs to advance women’s financial inclusion.
  • How to overcome the obstacles that prevent supervisors and FSPs from collecting and using SDD.
  • The best role for supervisors to support an improvement in female financial inclusion.
