Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
BEAM webinar: Beyond gendered social norms - institutional biases and market norms
At this webinar we will explore the influence of informal norms (beyond gender norms) on market system dynamics and market actor behaviours. Examples include institutional biases and norms for conducting business. Highlighting recent research for the Leveraging Economic Opportunities project, the presenters will share new understanding of how to define and identify norms, as well as share examples that can help practitioners understand how institutional biases shape business, market trajectories and change. Examples will draw specifically from USAID’s Agricultural Value Chains (AVC) project in Bangladesh.
