Global Forum on Transparency and Exchange of Information for Tax Purposes

Women Leaders in Tax Transparency - Building a network of women officials championing tax transparency in their tax administrations



The Global Forum has been providing capacity-building assistance to its members since 2011 and reducing gender gaps in member jurisdictions is one of the goals of its capacity-building strategy. As part of this effort, the Global Forum Secretariat started mainstreaming gender equality considerations and monitoring the gender balance of its capacity-building activities, in particular trainings. The Women Leaders in Tax Transparency programme further reinforces this ambition.

This flagship initiative aims at promoting female leadership in tax administrations and ministries of finance and developing sustainable capacities in tax transparency. Twenty-two women from 22 developing countries took part in the 2022 pilot programme. Following the success of the pilot, the Global Forum launched a new edition in 2023, with 24 women from 24 developing countries. The Global Forum is launching a third edition of the programme in 2024.

“I am proud to be the patron of the third edition of the Global Forum’s Women Leaders in Tax Transparency programme. This programme is a milestone for the promotion of gender equality in tax transparency, empowering women to build their professional skills, advance their careers, and take leading roles. I look forward to engaging with the participants of this year’s edition!”
