Episode 2: The economic power of women
Listen: "Women control a third of the world's global wealth today, and they make 70% of household consumption decisions. It is a segment that we all have to be focused on, because the success of the women as a whole is going to continue to drive economic prosperity for all of our countries around the world," says Ida Liu, Global Head of Citi Private Bank.
In the latest episode of Living Beyond Borders, a podcast produced in partnership between GZERO and Citi Global Wealth Investments, Liu joins Eurasia Group’s Celeste Tambaro for a candid conversation about the reasons why increased participation of women in the workforce and in leadership creates greater growth for companies and economies.
Women were disproportionately impacted by job loss during the pandemic, but there are indications that is changing as employment numbers climb back to levels seen before March 2020. Still, there is a long way to go toward equity, as Liu and Tambaro explain.
This episode is moderated by Shari Friedman, Eurasia Group’s Managing Director of Climate and Sustainability.
