Raising the Voice of Women Entrepreneurs with Economic Empowerment

CIPE and its partner, the Nicaraguan Businesswomen’s Network (REN), have worked on the National Business Women’s Agenda to reduce gender disparities in Nicaragua’s economic sphere. CIPE and REN organize a series of workshops to enhance women’s advocacy capacity and lead specific advocacy efforts through social and traditional media, working groups, and meetings with public and private sector representatives. This project aims at enhancing entrepreneurs’ ability to advocate for economic and social reform, and to amplify public and private sector support for policies that improve women’s economic empowerment.
