Women in Trade, Treasury and Payments 2024

7th March 2024

The Lansdowne Club, London


Exclusive In-Person Celebration of International Women’s Day 2024 with TFG: #InspireInclusion

TFG is happy to announce our exclusive Women in Trade, Treasury & Payments 2024 event, marking the celebration of International Women’s Day under the theme #InspireInclusion.

Following the success of the event last year, we are looking to continue to build the community of women leaders in the trade, treasury and payments industry.

As we gear up for International Women’s Day 2024, the theme #InspireInclusion takes centre stage. Inclusion is not just a concept; it’s the blueprint for a world that embraces everyone, irrespective of gender.

This year’s theme urges us to not only embrace but actively promote inclusion across all facets of life—be it well-being, employment, technology, sports, or social leadership.

This International Women’s Day, we’ll shine a spotlight on the careers, experiences, and achievements of women in international trade, treasury, and payments. It’s time to witness women breaking barriers and excelling in fields that were once dominated by men.

We aspire to encourage other women to embark on careers in the fields of trade, treasury, and payments. Beyond that, we aim to highlight the significance of trade in advancing female economic empowerment on a global scale.
