The International Budget Partnership, INTOSAI (IDI) and UN Women have teamed up to discuss 'Advancing Women's Leadership in Public Financial Management'.  It is great to have this topic discussed by key institutions that have it within them to drive change.

Did you know that in 2021, only 11% countries had finance portfolios held by women and less than a third of heads of national audit offices were women? We have come so far, but we still have much further to go if we are to achieve gender parity at the top.

The webinar is a side event of the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women There were a range of high level speakers from supreme audit institutions and ministries of finance. Watch the event in full and see our latest news on this website for our top ten takeaways.
