This multi-week global blended learning program, taught by Women’s World Banking and Faculty from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, brings together senior officials (male/female/nonbinary) from central banks and other regulatory agencies and high-potential women from their respective institutions. Each participating team (senior official + high potential leader) identifies a real-time institutional policy challenge related to women’s financial inclusion to work on throughout the learning journey.

Beginning in April 2024, participants come together for interactive online classes, team assignments, 1:1 advisory sessions and peer learning. Participants will also connect with peers from across the globe for intensive in-person learning at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in June 2024. Participants will also receive an optional invitation to the Alliance for Financial Inclusions’ Global Policy Forum to present their capstone, graduate and network with policymakers and regulators from all over the world in September 2024 in El Salvador.
