Linking Women to Markets: A Closer Look at Women's Market Readiness

Event Date: 
Jul 24, 2018
9:30 am EDT
Online Event


This webinar will explore different approaches of linking women to markets in the context of market systems and private sector development programming, and some of the examples and lessons coming out of the AWEF Jordan country program, the International Trade Centre’s SheTrades Platform, and ACDI/VOCA’s program supporting women in agribusiness. The discussion will examine practical lessons of different approaches for promoting women’s access to markets, specifically examining the extent to which women require training, capacity building and safeguarding measures to reduce risks such as exploitation. Speakers will showcase how different approaches can work effectively in diverse contexts, but also the implication for replication, sustainability and scale.

This webinar is the second event in a two-year learning series: "In Practice: Women's Economic Empowerment in Market Systems," which will feature a thought-provoking sequence of webinars, e-discussions, and practitioner briefs, followed by an in-person learning event. The learning partnership is brought to you by the Arab Women’s Enterprise Fund (AWEF)together with DAI EuropeMarketShare Associates, the SEEP Network and UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).
