Are digital financial services (DFS) truly gender-neutral?
How are biases replicated in the design and delivery of DFS? How can gender data help the industry leap forward to a gender-intelligent and inclusive business model?
This report provides a readout of the third roundtable discussion convened by Data2X’s Women’s Financial Inclusion Data (WFID) Partnership, including the Financial Alliance for Women and the team at Celo. This discussion centered on the imperative of gender data to create digital financial solutions that are gender-intelligent and inclusive.
It convened established and pioneering financial service providers (FSPs), fintechs, researchers and other key stakeholders to discuss the potential and risk of gender data in DFS, with the goal of advancing previous conversations and unearthing the most urgent considerations for gender data and digital finance.
