The Feminist Finance Forum 2023 took place at the United Nations Conference Centre in Bangkok on 16-17 August. The Forum brought together women entrepreneurs, investors, financial service providers, policymakers and other key financial actors to generate action towards closing the gender finance gap in Asia and the Pacific. The Forum was unique in that it challenged mainstream and patriarchal financial structures, delivering on its title through its approach and substance by centring women in a wide range discussions on finance.
This outcome document contains a summary of key insights, reflections and calls to action from the Forum, with specific recommendations. The recommendations will inform the second edition of the Forum in May 2024, and further catalyse regional commitment to promoting a feminist financial system.
