EMEA Webinar “Women’s Economic and Financial Empowerment in the Mediterranean and Africa: What has been achieved and what remains to be done?”
July 10, 2023
Promoting women’s economic and financial empowerment requires a fundamental multi-faceted approach. It involves creating an enabling environment that fosters gender-responsive policies, legal frameworks and supportive institutions. It also necessitates rethinking societal norms and attitudes towards gender roles and stereotypes to achieve gender equality. Furthermore, enhancing women’s access to education, vocational training, entrepreneurship support, and financial services are prerequisites to economic and financial empowerment and independence.
This webinar aims to assess achievements, take stock of barriers and explore opportunities, innovative approaches, best practices, and policy recommendations to advance women’s economic empowerment with a focus on the Mediterranean and Africa.
This webinar provides a platform for knowledge sharing, dialogue, and collaboration by gathering international experts, practitioners, and stakeholders from diverse backgrounds and for encouraging collaboration among various stakeholders to drive collective action in advancing women’s economic and financial empowerment.
