Euronext joins the global 'Ring the Bell for Gender Equality' initiative from Amsterdam, Brussels, Dublin, Lisbon, Milan, Oslo and Paris to celebrate International Women’s Day
For the eighth consecutive year, Euronext will take part in 'Ring the Bell for Gender Equality' — a collaboration of stock exchanges around the world ringing opening or closing bell ceremonies to celebrate International Women’s Day and promote the Women's Empowerment Principles. The initiative is a partnership between the UN Global Compact, IFC, Sustainable Stock Exchanges (SSE) initiative, UN Women, the World Federation of Exchanges and Women in ETFs to raise awareness about the business case for women’s economic empowerment and the opportunities for the private sector to advance gender equality and sustainable development.
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. This year, the United Nations theme for International Women’s Day 2022: “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow”, recognizing the contribution of women and girls around the world, who are leading the charge on climate change adaptation, mitigation, and response, to build a more sustainable future for all.
At Euronext we believe that collectively, we can drive decisive action to improve gender-balanced leadership in institutions and we are fully committed to retain, develop, and grow the representation of women in leadership, by inspiring and promoting tangible practices within the company and towards our community, while supporting our ecosystem.
