We feature an interview with Glynis Rankin, CEO of Creative Metier in the UK, in Mapping Pathways out of Poverty: The State of the Microcredit Summit Campaign Report, 2015. Rankin and her team work to ensure that the financial inclusion industry possesses the leadership and capacity to ensure long-term success. In this interview, Rankin describes a study of industry leaders to understand their perspectives on leadership qualities that Creative Metier undertook in preparation for the 17th Microcredit Summit in Mexico last year. (Registration for the 18th Microcredit Summit is now open!)
Cultivating the next generation of leadership is an important consideration for the microfinance and financial inclusion sector. We have an important role to play in achieving universal financial access by 2020 and ending extreme poverty by 2030.
