Webinar overview
In the first of a series of webinars on Transformative Approaches Towards Women’s Economic Empowerment, Francisco Campos (Africa Gender Innovation Lab) will present on Profiting from Parity: Unlocking the Potential of Women’s Businesses in Africa – a new report from the World Bank that explores the challenges Africa’s women entrepreneurs face and puts forward practical solutions to address these challenges.

Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest rate of entrepreneurship in the world and is the only region where women make up the majority of those who are entrepreneurs. Yet most entrepreneurs are unable to grow their businesses beyond small-scale subsistence operations. This is particularly so for women, whose businesses are less productive and have fewer employees than those owned by men. As governments continue their efforts to improve the conditions for private investment, a focus on the specific constraints faced by women entrepreneurs can help maximize the returns to limited public resources and ensure the benefits of private sector development are felt by everyone.

The Profiting from Parity report draws on a wealth of new data from various countries to present the clearest evidence to date about the constraints to growth and profitability faced by women entrepreneurs. It offers decision-makers a menu of options and evidence-based guidance on designing programs to target multiple constraints and improve the performance of women entrepreneurs.

The report can be found here: https://openknowledge.worldbank.org/bitstream/handle/10986/31421/135420-ProfitingfromParityFullReport.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=y

Francisco will present for 30 minutes and then there will be 30 minutes for questions and discussion.
