Today marks International Women’s Day, a global day focusing on equality – #EachforEqual – calling on us all of us to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate the achievements for women’s achievements.

This year’s theme is ‘Each for Equal’. TFG celebrates the economic, cultural, political and social achievements for women, because an equal world is an enabled world.

The conversation about gender equality at work needs to continue, and Trade Finance Global continues to discuss the lack of progress achieved across the trade and financial services sector and looks to ensuring improvements continue to be made across the board.

We spoke to 18 female role models within the trade space, asking for their stories, advice and challenges on the way to becoming the inspirational leaders that they are today.
