Women’s Forum Annual Global Meeting – Mainstreaming Purpose Through Finance

  • Paris & Webinar

Shearman & Sterling partner Sanja Udovicic spoke at the Women’s Forum annual Global Meeting program on Friday, November 19, 2021. She joined panelists to discuss the important topic of mainstreaming purpose through finance.

The financial sector and its regulators have begun to recognize that climate change, income inequality and now even pandemics pose systemic risks. How are financial sector actors moving from ad-hoc risk management, to strategic responses that address these systemic risks at their roots? What leadership is needed to transform the industry as it shifts systems?

The Women’s Forum annual Global Meeting is a platform to highlight and celebrate women’s leadership, a culmination of the year’s work on key issues where women are disproportionately affected and where women have the potential to lead outsize change, and a launchpad for new direction and initiatives. Under the theme “Her and Now: Uniting Purpose and Power for Equality,” the Women’s Forum brings changemakers and thought leaders together to shape an inclusive future that is challenged and inspired by provocative questions and reflections.
