IWD 2018: SPSE bell rings for 'women'

Update: 2:52PM THE South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) this morning celebrated International Women's Day by ringing its opening trading bell to raise awareness about the business case for gender equality and sustainable development.

"This event is in accretion to the Women in Leadership training program hosted by the SPSE last year, which saw the graduation of 25 professional women from SPSE listed companies and other selected corporate organisations for leadership roles," SPSE chief executive officer Krishika Narayan said.

"SPSE's participation in such events is a testament to how genuinely we view the agenda of gender parity as women's lack of representation in positions of leadership continues to be broadly acknowledged throughout the business world," she said.

To mark the bell ringing ceremony, the SPSE also organised a debate on the topic 'Should SPSE mandate listed companies to have women representation on its board through the SPSE Listing Rules?'.

The event, held at Tanoa Plaza Hotel in Suva, was attended by listed company executives, businessmen and women, stakeholders and members of the media.
