Shiva Dustdar, Director, Head of the EIB institute, was presented the Global Inspiring Women Worldwide Award this week at the WINConference in Rome.

WIN selected Shiva Dustdar because she operates with feminine values like being authentic,  approachable, while strategically using her network to make things happen. Her business partners recognise her outstanding communication abilities combined with her understanding of many of the most progressive themes in today’s financial markets, particularly around sustainable finance.

“I’m grateful to my mother and grandmother who were the true heroes and trailblazers of their time… They inspire me in my work to make finance more inclusive and build a world that meets the needs and realises the potential of men and women!,“ said Shiva upon receiving the award.
