Digital Financial Services Can Help Bring Millions of Women Into the Workforce

Digital financial services are instrumental in achieving this goal because they increase women's financial autonomy, support women's participation in the labor force and improve the performance of their businesses. A new report, "Digital Financial Solutions to Advance Women's Economic Participation," outlines the role of digital financial services in improving women's economic participation, the challenges of increasing women's access to digital financial services and the opportunities that governments and other sectors have to foster an inclusive global economy in which digital financial services are widely available to everyone, especially women.

For example, digital financial services can boost economic participation for the more than 2 billion people worldwide who currently lack access to formal financial services. There is also a role in this for the private and financial sectors. 獨自在國外三年的她為何不想回來?「因為我不喜歡台灣的文化」 - The News Lens 關鍵評論網. 文:查理(於法國求學、工作,目前居住於瑞典。)

獨自在國外三年的她為何不想回來?「因為我不喜歡台灣的文化」 - The News Lens 關鍵評論網

在咖啡館點餐時聽見了一首熟悉的歌,頓時變得多愁善感起來。 一個人在國外三年多,越來越覺得自己已經是某種變形的物種,想擺脫過去束縛而不停奔跑,到了遠方後卻又會往家的方向望去。 曾經有人問我為什麼不想回台灣工作定居,我說了一句台灣人聽起來應該會很刺耳的話:「因為我不喜歡台灣的文化。」 問我這問題的人馬上像被刺到一樣開始激動起來,只能怪我用字遣詞不夠精確。 台灣的文化指的不是歷史古蹟或是文學文字,而是關於人與人之間的距離和相處的文化。 我當然還是喜歡台灣文化的,但享受這種文化的副作用就是也要被它束縛著。 在台灣生活的時候我覺得很不自由,甚至覺得很痛苦,因為無論何時何地,我的一言一行都被規範,被社會莫名的道德觀和價值觀綑綁。 當然在台灣的時候我是沒有感覺的,是在法國的時候才赫然發現。 那是在法國的學校辦的一個派對,我和波蘭及巴西朋友走過了路燈稀少且暗暗的草皮,到了派對地點後就各自分開去和找人聊天。 我在一群陌生人中找到了幾個熟悉的臉孔,然後就開始不分你我地天南地北聊了起來,我們大笑且開始跳舞。 因為在這裡沒有人會問我的家庭背景及工作學歷,沒有人知道我的過去,也沒有人在乎,他們只看得見這個開心大笑跳舞的女孩。 他們不知道我是個單親家庭的小孩,他們不知道我成績好不好,他們不知道我其實是個害羞又沒什麼朋友的人,他們對我二十幾年來生活累積的歷史一無所知,只看得見我展現出來的那些。 我感到無比自由,因為我可以忘記過去家庭或是自己行為的包袱,創造出一個全新的自己,或者現在的樣子才是真正的自己。 Women, Business and the Law - Creating Economic Opportunity for Women - World Bank Group.

A CEO’s guide to gender equality

That’s why more CEOs, heads of state, and university leaders are committing themselves to gender-equality goals for the institutions they lead. But gender equality is proving difficult to achieve. How can companies and public institutions move more quickly? This CEO’s guide synthesizes multiple sources to make quick sense of a complex issue. The promise of gender equality Gender equality gets a lot of attention these days, and for good reason: it is not only an issue of fairness but also, for companies, a matter of attracting the best workers, at least half of whom are women. A new study by the McKinsey Global Institute finds that the world economy could add trillions of dollars in growth during the next ten years if countries met best-in-region scores for improving women’s participation in the labor force (Exhibit 1).

Gallup, ILO Partner to Conduct Global Poll on Women at Work

Under the agreement, the two organizations will work together to get new insights on gender equality and the world of work through the Gallup World Poll. Using rigorous, standardized methodology for collecting data worldwide and covering countries that are home to more than 99% of the world's population, the Gallup World Poll data represent the largest globally comparable data set. It covers a representative sample of women and men aged 15 and older, in all regions, and across urban/rural, education and income divides, and by migration status. The new questions in the World Poll are intended to find out what women want in the world of work, what is helping or stopping them from getting it, and the support of or the negotiations with men that are essential to achieving this.
