Ajay Banga and Kristalina Georgieva to Discuss Women, Gender Parity and the Role of Private Sector

Women in the World’s Annual Summit takes place at Lincoln Center’s Koch Theater in New York City this week, beginning Wednesday, April 5th. Mastercard is once again a proud sponsor.

On Friday, April 7th, Gillian Tett, U.S. managing editor for Financial Times, will conduct a livestreamed fire-side chat with Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga and World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva from 11:20 am to 12:00 pm ET. The session, titled The Power of We, will explore how public private partnerships, innovation and action can drive inclusion around the world.

The summit, presented by Tina Brown Live Media in association with The New York Times began in 2010 and attracts extraordinary leaders, inspirational activists, and political change-makers to share their stories and to offer solutions to building a better life for women and girls.

At Mastercard, we’re building, growing and supporting a culture of inclusion. It’s a culture that inspires each of us to bring our diverse thinking, experiences and perspectives to everyday activities. That is why Mastercard was recognized by Gender Fair as a company that demonstrates real and substantial commitment to women’s equality as employees, consumers and citizens.

Inspired by the United Nations’ fifth Sustainable Development Goal we launched Give Me 5, an initiative that addresses Mastercard’s work to engage, enable and empower women across the globe.
