EGX joined 43 Stock Exchanges around the world celebrating "Ringing the bell for gender equality". This marks the 3rd edition of the EGX celebration of gender parity alongside other international institutions.

The ceremony was attended by H.E. Mrs. GhadaWali, Minister of Social Solidarity and Dr. Jorg Schimmel Country Director of the UN women in Egypt, as well as representatives of the UN Global Compact, Egypt, the International Finance Corporation (IFC), and a number of leading Egyptian companies that apply the principles of gender equality, and a group of renowned figures as well as Parliament representatives.

Dr. Mohammed Omran, Chairman of the Egyptian Exchange stated that EGX consideration for the issue of gender equality and women empowerment is a genuine interest as it is part of the sustainable development of EGX strategy. He added that, “A large percentage of the employees and management team at EGX are women hence the crucial step towards emphasizing its commitment to gender equality.”

The EGX has incorporated an exceptional initiative among institutions in Egypt by pushing for ½ of its executive committee’s compositions to be women. This ensures that the Exchange meets its commitment of promoting gender equality.
