On International Women’s Day 2022, exchanges throughout Europe
Rang the Bell for Gender Equality! This initiative, promoted by Sustainable Stock Exchanges and the United Nations Global Compact, seeks to raise awareness about the business case for women’s economic empowerment and the opportunities for the private sector to advance gender equality and sustainable development.
The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day is
Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow: as FESE, we believe building diverse, equal and inclusive workplaces is not only right, but is integral to business success and to delivering the more resilient, sustainable economy we need.
