Barbara participated in a luncheon session entitled The Care Economy alongside Henriette Kolb, Head, IFC Gender Secretariat, International Finance Corporation, Sara Webber Laczo, Principal, Corporate Communications Leader, RSM US LLP and Silvina Moschini, Founder, Yandiki and SheWorks! The panel was moderated by Kweilin Ellingrud, Partner, McKinsey & Company.
The discussion focussed on investments in care infrastructure that could facilitate women’s active and full participation in the labour market.
“Policy making and private sector investments are, of course, effective in boosting women’s economic opportunities,” said Barbara. “However, to unleash the full potential of the female labour force, we need women to be more assertive in challenging the status quo and bolder in asking for what they really want and need.”
