Women in business: a vital force

Women are a key driver of today’s global economy and a vital force for positive social change. They “face different risks throughout their lives, and it’s up to us to tailor our offers in a way that enhances and increases their impact and reach”, said Ulrike Decoene, Group Head of Communications, Brand and Corporate Responsibility of AXA. For this reason, AXA is a member of the FAW, a unique international consortium of financial service providers dedicated to supporting women’s empowerment.
