Webinar: Harnessing an enabling environment for women’s economic empowerment post-pandemic

August 5 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

5 August 2020 12 pm ET, 6 pm CET, 7 pm EAT
Investing in women’s economic opportunities is good business for all, because when more women work, economies grow. However, limited information and data exist on how countries are progressing on the issue and many global economic indices have failed to account for gender discrimination, leading to an incomplete picture of the opportunities available to women in many low- and middle-income countries.
On August 5, 2020, Devex and Atlas Network will host an online event that will discuss the need to support more local solutions for women’s economic empowerment, build on-the-ground accountability mechanisms to help drive impact, as well as better ways to measure success in order to build a more inclusive approach to grant making for women’s economic empowerment programs.
