Empowering Women for Growth and Prosperity: Navigating Barriers and Constraints

Mar 09, 2018

The Urban Institute, in collaboration with the International Development Research Centre, invites you to a discussion on the barriers to and enablers of women’s economic empowerment. We will consider how evidence is used for policymaking in the Global South and ways stakeholders can support women’s economic empowerment.

Areas under discussion will include broad-based development policies, combined with specific interventions targeting women, foster greater economic empowerment for women, and factors that determine women’s ability to work in more productive economic sectors. 

Ms. Fauzia Viqar, Chairperson, Punjab Commission on the Status of Women, Punjab, Pakistan will be one of the key speakers.
