Sustainable Finance Geneva will launch the Gender Lens Initiative Switzerland (“GLIS”), as new
working group within SFG, with the following mission: to enhance the Swiss contribution to SDG5
through public-private partnerships, research, products development and promotion, organisational
assessments, awareness-building events & media coverage.
The GLIS will have an academic research committee (ARCO) of advisors from various Swiss and possibly
foreign universities, to help design and implement research related to gender lens investment products,
the gender balance of financial institutions, and women as capital owners and investors in Switzerland.
