Leadership and Diversity Programs Volunteer

NAME OF ACTIVITY: Leadership and Diversity Programs Volunteer
TIME PERIOD: February – May, 2018

Women’s World Banking’s Gender Assessment Methodology serves to evaluate an institution’s gender diversity among staff and leadership, its recruitment, retention, reward and promotion of women as well as outreach to the low-income women’s market, product design, marketing, delivery channels and education programs.

Women’s World Banking is the global leader in women’s financial inclusion. Rooted in our deep understanding of the women’s market, we tackle financial inclusion in three interconnected ways: first, by partnering with financial services providers to develop scalable market-driven solutions; second, through our gender-lens private equity fund; and, finally, because diverse institutions are proven to be stronger, we build institutional capacity through leadership and diversity programs. Through this holistic approach and our global reach of 49 institutions in 32 countries, we accelerate economic opportunity for low-income women and growth for financial service providers in the emerging markets.

This assignment will serve to inform Women’s World Banking on market opportunities and to continue refinement of tools, templates and collateral.

Roles and Responsibilities

This position will be located in New York City, NY.

The volunteer will be expected to commit one day per week to this engagement through May 2018.

Applications will be received and reviewed on a rolling basis.
