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



Since 2011, the Secretariat of the Global Forum has been providing capacity-building assistance to its members. Reducing gender gaps in member jurisdictions is one of the goals of the Global Forum’s capacity-building strategy. As part of this effort, the 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. Twenty-two women from 22 developing countries took part in the 2022 pilot programme.

Following the success of the 2022 pilot, the Global Forum is launching a new edition of the Women leaders in tax transparency programme in 2023.

“I am proud to be the patron of the second edition of the Women leaders in tax transparency programme. This successful programme represents a milestone for the Global Forum as it contributes to the fight for gender equality and empowers women to take leading roles on tax transparency in tax administrations. I look forward to engaging with the participants.”
