The Women in Business Committee has great pleasure in presenting an opportunity to hear Jyoti Chopra, Chief Diversity Officer and Head of Global Citizenship & Sustainability at BNY Mellon. Join us for breakfast on October 25, where Jyoti will talk about investment opportunities that close the gender gap. It is estimated that achieving parity across products and services in just five sectors - water, contraception, telecommunications, energy, and child care - could unlock US$300 billion in incremental annual spending by 2025. In broader terms, McKinsey estimates an additional US$12 trillion in annual GDP if the gender gap is narrowed. Yet despite such economic incentives, are we really any closer to achieving parity than in 1972 when the Equal Rights Amendment was passed in the U.S., or in 1999 when the Basic Act for Gender Equal Society took effect in Japan? What more can be done to unlock the potential that is equality?
