Data Driving Action for Women Dialogue Series

During the 63rd United Nations Commission on the Status of Women, BNY Mellon and Data2X’s Women’s Financial Inclusion Data (WFID) partnership, including the Global Banking Alliance for Women, convened senior representatives from global financial institutions for a dialogue on a central question: how can financial institutions best serve women clients, and how can data guide these efforts?

The roundtable discussion generated thoughtful insights and concrete examples of how institutions are reaching and expanding their female client base, from sex-disaggregating data to compare rates of product usage between women and men, to launching dedicated services for women small business owners. Participants expressed enthusiasm not only about ongoing efforts to make financial services gender-informed, but also about opportunities to think about gender data collection and use in new ways. This roundtable report outlines key findings and discussion themes from the session, including challenges, success stories, and future steps to advance inclusive finance for women through action-driven dialogues.
