Women in Governance

October 21, 6:00 – 8:00 PM
Mayer Brown LLP, 1675 Broadway, New York City, USA

The Accion Women’s Network is hosting a panel discussion on women in governance. Featured panelists Deborah Drake, Vice President of the Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion, and Melissa Lumpkin Baez, Director of Global Operations in Africa, will discuss the importance of board gender diversity and will share how Accion is working to promote an increased presence of women in governance in our partner institutions, and in the greater microfinance industry. We anticipate a lively discussion and hope you can attend – if you have something to contribute based on your own experience with board service, your perspective is encouraged! The event will be held 6-8pm at Mayer Brown LLP, 1675 Broadway, New York, NY. To RSVP, contact Andrea Horak at 617.684.0245 or ahorak@accion.org.
