Queen Máxima of the Netherlands will attend the Leaders on Purpose Summit in her capacity as the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development (UNSGSA) for a fireside chat focused on „Financial Inclusion and Systems Change“ with Dan Schulman, President and CEO of PayPal. They will share their insights on how financial inclusion models can support overall economic growth and the achievement of broader development goals.

Hosted in collaboration with leadership from the UN, the summit’s agenda is set by CEOs for leaders of all sectors. The event is part of a series and a ten-year roadmap towards a better, thriving economy for all. Participants represent the vanguard of the new business logic.

These organizations play a key role in building better and for systems change by creating business models that operate within planetary boundaries and address societal needs. As more businesses commit to ESG goals, coordination and alignment are crucial to enabling positive systemic transformation.
