The European Bank of Reconstruction Development (EBRD) showcased its support for International Women's Day with leaders and staff highlighting their commitment to #BreakTheBias

The EBRD Director, Gender and Economic Inclusion, Barbara Rambousek, reflected on the team's work in the context of the bank's new Gender and Equality of Opportunity Strategies, stating, "Women will always be at the heart of the EBRD's work, and we're proud to work with partners and clients to create meaningful change."

The EBRD also noted that the need to mark International Women's Day is especially important in times of war and crisis. "Women are disproportionately affected by conflicts and disasters such as the pandemic. But they also play a huge role in building peace and resilience," explains the EBRD

The bank held a special event named Promoting Gender Equality in Time of Crisis. Opened by Barbara, she said, "This year, IWD comes at a time of crises, at a time when the world around us is changing fast."

Featuring EBRD President Odile Renaud-Basso and the Minister of International Cooperation, Rania A. Al Mashat, the conversation looked at the importance of continuing to focus on promoting gender equality and what we can do together.
