The Future is Blended: What does that mean for Women? (SoCap18)

  • Fort Mason Building San Francisco (map)

Blended finance leverages public and philanthropic funding to unlock private sector dollars for global development. Its potential is immense, but is it good for women? In our session, experts will debate whether women are more or less likely to benefit from blended finance, compared to traditional development aid. Will blended finance divert scarce resources away from initiatives that benefit women? Or will it make it possible to get more gender-focused investments off the ground?
