In cooperation with

The COVID pandemic and other major current economic challenges accentuate the role of economic perceptions for economic agents’ behavior, for optimal economic policy responses and their communication. In the financial sphere, the role of Fintech challenges established financial institutions’ business models and at the same time requires consumers to quickly and sharply adjust their user behavior of financial and payments services. What role does gender play in these fields? Does gender influence perceptions and the speed and mode of adjustment to new economic developments and to rapidly changing financial services towards Fintech? How can the gender mix among experts, policy and decision makers affect the conception and development of economic policy responses and of Fintech, to ensure fair and equal access and benefits for all, irrespective of gender? This meeting will bring together policy makers, academics, and financial industry representatives to address gender-related aspects and to share best practices in the field.
