Today, on International Women’s Day [IWD], the women of the Bermuda Monetary Authority are “standing strong together to #InspireInclusion.”

A spokesperson said, “Women play a prominent role in the BMA’s labour force, with a growing number serving in senior positions and strong representation on the Board of Directors. In 2024, the Authority will build further upon this foundation by setting broader and more formalised Diversity Equity and Inclusion goals and strategies, including those pertaining to gender.

“I would like to take this opportunity to applaud the many outstanding women at the BMA and thank them for the tireless dedication they bring to their work across the Authority year-round,” said Shanna Lespere, Deputy CEO.

“I am truly honoured to serve alongside the more than 140 talented women at the BMA every single day of the year. I would like to encourage everyone in Bermuda to empower and support the inclusion and success of women in their workplaces, as well as at home and across community.”

The spokesperson said, “Celebrated globally on 8 March each year, IWD was created to bring attention to women’s achievements around the world.
