Apply now – Scholarship Opportunity by A2ii and InsuResilience

10 months ago


The A2ii and the InsuResilience Global Partnership Secretariat are jointly sponsoring participation of two senior insurance supervisors and high potential women from their authorities at the Leadership and Diversity Program for Regulators developed by Women’s World Banking and faculty from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School. The nine-month experience includes ongoing virtual learning and a week-long intensive at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School.

This nine-month global program brings together up to 20 senior officials from central banks and other regulatory agencies in developing economies, with 20 high-potential women from their respective institutions. Each senior official will identify a policy initiative to sponsor at his or her institution related to serving the women’s market, and will work with the high-potential woman leader to implement it, while simultaneously supporting her professional development during and after the program.  The curriculum will focus on policy development and leadership competencies to support the advancement of the policy initiative.

The joint scholarship will include the tuition fee for the Leadership Program for two participants per institution (senior official and high-potential woman leader). Women’s World Banking will cover housing, curricular materials and most meals during the week in Oxford. Participants must cover all travel and incidental expenses such as flights to the UK, ground transportation, visas, insurance and additional meals.

You are eligible for the sponsorship, if you are 

•      a senior official from the insurance regulatory authority from a V20 country

•      part of the executive/ senior management team or lead a regulatory division

•      able to commit to a nine-month long program with multiple virtual and in-person touchpoints
