Many countries now recognize that closing gender gaps enables men and women to fully participate in the economy as workers, employers, suppliers and community partners. However, programs that target women’s economic empowerment are not always measured, and it is hard to know whether these investments are working. Research and evaluations testing different approaches to measuring economic empowerment have increased, but consensus on what works best has yet to be reached.
This event will explore the latest work on measuring economic empowerment, and how to use this new knowledge to better design and implement effective programs in diverse contexts. It will feature new work by the World Bank’s Africa Gender Innovation Lab, GroW, IFPRI, Corewoman, a keynote presentation by Naila Kabeer, and an in-depth discussion with World Bank staff of how to move the economic empowerment agenda to the next level.
