Countries can unlock enormous economic growth potential by breaking down barriers and stereotypes, offering more, better and inclusive jobs, sharing care-giving and other responsibilities, increasing equal ownership of and control over land and finance, and actively supporting the voice and leadership of women in all aspects of their lives and organizations.

Join finance ministers, CEOs, and other development experts for a discussion about why, and how, closing salient gaps between men and women, and boys and girls, helps families, communities, cities and economies prosper.
