According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the World Bank, financial literacy in most countries worldwide is lower among women than men. This restricts opportunities for women to use modern financial instruments and services. It also affects their personal financial security, which is critical to financial well-being. How and when should financial competencies be first instilled in women? What could serve as a foundation for international exchange and global application?
Topics for discussion:
- Womens financial literacy in Russia and across the globe. Russias experience in raising financial literacy.
- Do girls and women have specific needs when it comes to financial education?
- What areas of collaboration to increase financial inclusion and financial literacy already exist? What needs to be prioritized in international associations and organizations?
- What successful global practice in increasing financial literacy and financial inclusion is there?
