Gender Committee

We are committed to bridging the gap of inequity between the genders, the First Citizens Foundation strives to empower women and men to fulfil their highest potential as gender inequality and imbalances of power have long been a concern for the global community. The focus on gender as a CSR pillar has allowed the Group to create socially impacting programmes which further this agenda. These include: The First Citizens Women Conference, First Citizens Girls First Festivals, The First Citizens Fund for The Advancement of Women, First Citizens Boys Symposium.
