BLC Bank Organizes a Study Tour for International Banks

Between the 3rd and the 5th of February 2016, BLC Bank hosted its 4th study tour, the 2nd to the Global Banking Alliance (GBA) for Women members, focusing on the Bank’s journey in the development and success of the WE Initiative program.

The three-day event brought together international institutions and members of GBA interested in developing and growing a women’s market program in their countries and saw participants coming from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Uganda, Laos, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Kosovo.

The GBA is an organization that brings together banks and financial institutions from all over the world to develop strategies for the promotion of women’s wealth creation. In 2012 BLC Bank joined its ranks to become the first bank from the MENA region to sign up, and the first to commit to the UN’s Women’s Empowerment Principles. Since September 2015, BLC Bank – represented by Tania Moussallem, chairs the alliance.
