Gender inequities challenge entrepreneurs in accessing viable credit for their businesses across the globe. World Council of Credit Unions’ (WOCCU) is developing a Gender Lens Investing (GLI) Toolkit to address these inequities so everyone, especially women entrepreneurs, can access productive finance through our network of global credit unions.
In celebration of International Women’s Day, WOCCU’s GLI4CUs team will share our experiences in creating the GLI methodology and our impact to date, from diagnostic to design. We will also hear from USAID’s gender-focused leadership on what role GLI plays in achieving global development objectives and how credit unions can contribute to this larger effort.
The webinar will feature presentations from:
• Wade Channell, Senior Economic Growth Advisor for Gender, USAID
• Sophie Romana, Independent GLI Consultant and Advisor to Senegal GLI4CUs
• Dylan Butler, Program Manager, WOCCU
