Women Green the Way was initially launched as a pilot program, uniting over 80 leaders in the sustainable finance field from various parts of Asia. The program garnered tremendous success and received recognition at COP 28 (https://www.state.gov/u-s-department-of-state-fosters-womens-girls-climate-action-at-cop28/).

We are pleased to announce that WIFA (Women in Finance Asia) will be partnering with the U.S. Department of State to expand this program. On March 25, we will hold the official launch of the WGTW Network, bringing together WGTW participants and the Bay to Bay Climate Forum delegation for this celebration.
