Women's Access to Insurance - Public Dialogue

En español

En français

A gender gap persists when it comes to women’s access to financial services, including insurance. Women’s access to insurance and associated gender considerations are emerging priorities for stakeholders in the insurance sector and there is a clear and present need for integrating a gender perspective in insurance regulation and supervision. The gender gap in women’s access to insurance is often attributed to challenges like lack of data, socio-cultural barriers and low levels of financial literacy, particularly for low-income women in developing and emerging economies. To bridge this gap, it is essential to design products that meet women’s specific needs and raise awareness of the transformative potential of gendered approaches in regulation and supervision. Promoting women’s access to insurance will also contribute to the achievement of broader policy objectives and the sustainable development goals, particularly SDG 5: Gender Equality.

On 27 May, the A2ii and IAIS will be discussing women’s access to insurance in our Public Dialogue. Insights from A2ii’s upcoming report on the theme will be presented. The participants will hear from industry experts as well as supervisory authorities who will share their experiences related to enhancing women’s access to insurance in emerging markets.

This webinar will be open to all stakeholders and will take place at 14:00 CET in English (with simultaneous Spanish and French interpretation). It will last one hour and will take place via WebEx.
