WE NEW YORKWOMEN & ECONOMIC GROWTH: WHAT WE NEED TO KNOWIncrease


How can the world generate economic value by closing the gender inequality gap? What can women in the ETF industry learn from this?

In a recent report,“Women in the Economy: Global Growth Generators,” the Citi global economics team analyzed the dynamics of global female labor force participation, participation which has flat-lined over the past 20 years.

WE New York hosted a breakfast event with over 60 guests who had the privilege of joining a thought-provoking conversation from two of the report authors, Tina Fordham (Managing Director and Chief Global Political Analyst at Citi, one of the "Top 100 Most Influential Women in Finance" and the "Top 19 Economists on Wall Street") and Heidi Crebo-Rediker (CEO of International Capital Strategies, Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, member of the Global Agenda Council for the US for the World Economic Forum and formerly first Chief Economist for the State Department). 

The discussion on Women & Economic Growth was moderated by Anita Rausch, Director on the Capital MarketsTeam at WisdomTree ETFs, and graciously hosted by MSCI, which treated their WE guests with spectacular city views and a full breakfast. Tina and Heidi shared highlights of their extensive research report on the role women can play in the global economy as engines of growth, and participated in a lively discussion moderated by Anita where they each shared personal anecdotes and inflection points in their own impressive careers.
