The World Federation of Exchanges is pleased to announce that a record 121 exchanges and CCPs will be involved in events this week for the annual ‘Ring the Bell for Gender Equality’ initiative.

This marks the eighth consecutive year of the initiative where exchanges and CCPs globally ring opening or closing bells to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022 (Tuesday 8 March 2022), promote gender equality, highlight the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace, and recognize the contribution of women in building a better future for all.

At this time, the industry commends the World Federation of Exchange 2022 Women Leaders, a distinguished global cohort, who are selected from every corner of the world each year as role models.

Nandini Sukumar, CEO of the WFE said: “Exchanges and CCPs celebrate the role of women in the workplace and look forward to even greater progress in the years ahead. By ringing the bell, public markets are giving voice and visibility to women everywhere.’’

The Ring the Bell events, both in-person and virtual, started on Tuesday 1 March and will last for two weeks.
