Ring the Bell x NEO Aequitas

In celebration of International Women's Day on 8 March 2020, stock exchanges around the world will host a bell-ringing ceremony to raise awareness of the pivotal role the private sector can play in advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 on gender equality and women's empowerment. In March 2019, a record 85 exchanges rang their bells for gender equality, an increase from 33 exchanges four years ago. 2020 is expected to see increased engagement as it is a momentous year for gender equality and women's empowerment.
