7th Mediterranean Women Entrepreneurs Forum
Need for change
27th of November 2015. Casa Llotja de Mar, Barcelona
Countries and companies can be competitive only if they develop, attract and retain the best talents, both male and female. How can women empowerment contribute to economic growth?
There is a bi-directional relationship between economic development and women empowerment defined as improving the ability of women to access the constituents of development. While development itself will bring about women’s empowerment, empowering women will bring about changes in decision-making, which will have a direct impact on development.
