WORKING GROUP GENDER LENS INITIATIVE FOR SWITZERLAND
Tim Radjy, Vice-President of Sustainable Finance Geneva, commented: “The launch of this working group is the result of a seminal Gender Lens meeting convened in Geneva on 7 October 2020 by AlphaMundi and Gender Smart Investing. It is a groundbreaking initiative for the Swiss market that showcases Sustainable Finance Geneva’s role as a platform for innovation and partnerships.”
