Ep 4 - Gender equity in the Arab world: Financial services in the UAE

In 2019, the UAE advanced 23 positions on the UNDP Gender Equality Index to 26th globally and is now leading the Arab world in terms of gender equality.

In this first installment of a series about gender equity in the Arab world, Sophie chats with Mercedes Monserrate, associate director for International Affairs at Abu Dhabi Global Market, the financial centre of the United Arab Emirates' capital.

They discuss her journey, UAE gender parity initiatives, and the efforts led by Abu Dhabi to become a leading destination to work and grow a diverse business.
