Event Description

Programs designed to achieve women’s economic empowerment are based on diverse perspectives. Some believe that a shift in gender norms is necessary for successful acquisition of skills, breaking gender stereotypes, sustaining the effort of empowering girls and women, and promoting women in workforce and business. Others contend that, due to the urgency of securing livelihoods for girls and women, rather than waiting for gender norms to change, investing in skill development will, ultimately, manifest in a shift in gender norms.

This webinar explores the question “What should be prioritized for investment – direct interventions with women and girls or changing social norms?” Participants will learn about the challenges and opportunities various skills and enterprise development programs face when implementing projects that seek to change gender relations. The webinar will focus on the intersection between direct interventions and broader activities that aim to tackle social norms and will highlight lessons from the field, including India and Zambia.
