Business as a bridge to girls’ empowerment: What does it take?

  • We are Social Alphabeta 14-18, Floor 5 Finsbury Square London (map)

This International Day of the Girl, we recognise that the time to invest in women and girls is now. This event will bring together projects and organisations that support business models and social innovations that empower adolescent girls and young women in markets where they are often marginalised.

Speakers will share their stories, ideas and knowledge on the role that businesses can play in creating impact for girls and in providing tools for them to thrive.

Questions the panel will consider:

  • Why should businesses adopt more of a gender lens?

  • What are the barriers to businesses designing products and services to impact girls?

  • What are the ways for businesses to unlock potential girl impact?

  • What is the role of funders and donors in supporting businesses that achieve development impact and help girls thrive?
