Episode notes

The Qatar Centre for Global Banking and Finance proudly presents the Women in Central Banking episode for the Connections Podcast from King’s Business School. 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 also 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 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. This podcast was recorded in March 2021. Learn more about the Qatar Centre for Global Banking and Finance: Learn more about King's Business School:
