Maxima, who worked in the field of investment banking before her marriage, was a part of a panel discussion about economic and entrepreneurial opportunities for women. She often advocates for greater economic empowerment for women as a part of her role as the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development.
