The SEEP Network, in collaboration with Forum Partners, is hosting an international convening on women’s economic empowerment, focusing on bringing down the systemic barriers standing in the way of scalable and sustainable change. The Forum will bring together leading stakeholders in the field of women’s economic empowerment to facilitate dialogue, build global learning connections, and promote effective policy and practice to address the needs of vulnerable women all around the world.
The WEE Global Learning Forum intends to narrow the divide between best practices and informed policy decisions and aims to explore topics that are emerging as critical constraints to women’s economic empowerment across the globe. The agenda of the Forum will focus on three themes:
- The Rural Poor: Women’s Empowerment on and off the Farm
- Employment Opportunities through Enterprise Development and Job Creation
- Women’s Financial Inclusion: Leveraging Finance to Advance Women’s Empowerment
