Elance works on equal opportunities for women by connecting cultural backgrounds, between women and between policy, education and work.

Earlier Queen Maxima gave a virtual opening speech on International Women's Day at the event 'Call to Action for Reaching Financial Equality'. The event organized by the Better Than Cash Alliance, UNCDF, World Bank Group and Women's World Banking is about financial equality between men and women #genderequality.



In her speech, Queen Máxima encouraged governments and companies to use digital inclusive finance for women as a tool for economic recovery after the pandemic. Women still have less access to financial services than men. This hinders their opportunities for development. The corona crisis is hitting the economic position of women disproportionately hard, according to UN Women.
