Christine Lagarde became the first woman to head the European Central Bank on November 1, 2019. The election put her in charge of European monetary policy during a time of geopolitical uncertainty and slowing economic growth in the region. From 2011 until mid-2019, Lagarde ran the International Monetary Fund that works to ensure the stability of the global monetary system. She was the first woman to hold that position.
At the Forbes Women’s Summit in 2019, Lagarde took the stage to discuss the economic potential in closing the gender gap and the challenges of navigating different career paths as a woman.
