Gender inclusion in Clean Energy and Sustainable Agriculture Value Chains
Rebecca Fries, Value for Women
Expert panel discussion on building the business case for gender inclusion within SMEs. We will bring together a collection of experts working at the intersection of gender inclusion and SME development, and discuss key findings and best practices on: - The incorporation of gender inclusion strategies into SME business models - How gender inclusion can enhance SME performance - How SMEs can utilise gender inclusion when seeking investor funding. Session attendees will come away from the session with an understanding of which gender inclusion strategies support SME development, how to incorporate such strategies into SMEs, and tactics to position strategies to support future investments.
