In recent years, women have risen to the most senior roles in central banking, with Janet Yellen becoming the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve in America and now the first woman to serve as Treasury Secretary and Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank.

Dame Colette Bowe (External Member of the Financial Policy Committee, Bank of England) joins Dr Francesca Monti (Deputy Director, Qatar Centre for Global Banking and Finance) to share their experiences of working in central banks. They share their thoughts on and experiences on issues such as gender bias, the change in working patterns ushered in by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the importance of having a gender-balanced view from both men and women when setting crucial policies that will affect the economy as a whole.
