Insurance and pensions

Conference on business, finance and gender


 8 March 2017 OECD Conference Centre, Paris

How should pension systems account for gender differences and deliver equitable pensions for women and men? Do differences in financial literacy between men and women impact their long-term well-being? What can be done to provide women with access to the formal economy and safe working conditions? How can men engage more within companies to bring about change?


These are some of the questions to be debated at an OECD-hosted conference taking place on International Women’s Day within the framework of the OECD Gender Initiative. the conference will be attended by senior decision-makers from the public and corporate worlds, experts, academics and stakeholders.
