WOMENNOVATOR GLOBAL 2019
Womennovator Global 2019 is a competition with a prize but the goal is to develop a community.
Womennovator Global 2019 is a platform to celebrate inspirational women with substance and to encourage women to work in the financial services and fintech sectors. Womennovator Global 2019 is a ‘gap closing’ initiative and is a direct result of two presentations from our 2019 conference in Dubai.
During the TGS global conference, Tripti S. Somani gave a presentation about her Indian initiative, Womennovator. The initiative had been a huge success in India and raised national awareness of female entrepreneurs and created a community of support and encouragement for more women to become entrepreneurs. She received our first ever, and well deserved, standing ovation.
Also, during the TGS Global conference we had a presentation from Ayla Bajwa, representative of the United Nations Global Compact UAE and CEO of the 100% female sustainable tech start up, “AmpUs”. TGS became signatories of the Global Compact in 2018 and we are engaged to address the issue of gender balance in our firms.
Ayla challenged us in asking, “Why are there not more women in your firms?” One of our members replied that, “There are no candidates for us to employ. It’s not our fault there is such large gender imbalance in our firms.” Ayla bounced right back with, “So what can you do to make sure there are more candidates for you to employ?”
Womennovator Global 2019, inspired by Womennovator.co.in, is part of the TGS answer to reducing the gender imbalance in the financial services sector and we are proud and delighted that Tripti has agreed to help us get it up and running.
TGS is all about SDG 5
