Two, it seeks to provide inputs to the participants on crucial trends and developments in banking and financial services business-, as every leader or potential leader, regardless of gender, ought to know. Three, it aims at sensitizing the participants about certain issues and facts surrounding gender equality and equity, particularly in the context of financial services business. Four, going beyond discussion, it helps participants explore and identify their typical personality traits and leadership competencies that are potentially more relevant for financial services business. Special focus will be on such traits and leadership competencies which women might typically possess.
