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.
