Article by Charity Wallace September 19, 2013 //   1 minute read

This week, the Women’s Initiative team is reading a new report published by the UN Foundation and the ExxonMobil Foundation, A Roadmap for Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment, which identifies proven, promising and high potential interventions that directly advance women’s economic empowerment.

The report summarizes 18 research studies commissioned for the two-year initiative across four categories of employment – entrepreneurship, farming, wage employment and young women’s employment. It analyzes the effectiveness of interventions in terms of increasing women’s productivity and earnings in economic and social contexts. The report examines the efficacy and sustainability of programs to provide a new, reliable framework for how best to empower women, which is central to the work of the Women’s Initiative at the Bush Institute.
