Promoting Inclusive Markets and Financial Systems
The Theory Behind the Approach: Women’s Economic Empowerment in Inclusive Market Systems Development
Given the growing importance of inclusive market systems development and questions about how it can promote gender equality and women’s economic empowerment, the SEEP Network and UN Women have teamed up to bring you a learning series entitled "From Theory to Practice: Women’s Economic Empowerment in Inclusive Market Systems Development." The learning series will take place over the first half of 2015, bringing you the chance to closely engage with key experts on conceptual and practical issues around women’s economic empowerment in inclusive market systems.
Join us for the first webinar!
The first session, The Theory Behind the Approach: Women’s Economic Empowerment in Inclusive Market Systems Development, will examine the implications for women’s economic empowerment in inclusive market development based on a paper released by the USAID Leveraging Economic Opportunities project, presented by the report’s authors. An expert commentator from the International Labour Organization will then discuss potential implications. Ample time will be left for questions.
Immediately after the webinar, the e-discussion on women’s economic empowerment in inclusive market development will be kicked off on EmpowerWomen.org to continue the conversation. The experts from the webinars will be answering any pending questions. To join the conversation, please register here.
Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to learn about women’s economic empowerment in market systems development!
We look forward to having you join the discussion!
