Background on the Promoting Women Leaders Globally in Economic Recovery Project
The Center for Women’s Economic Empowerment (CWEE) at CIPE empowers women to overcome economic inequality and lead private sector engagement, entrepreneurial ventures, and partnerships. CWEE strengthens community and global networks of women to advocate for democratic reforms, facilitating more resilient and inclusive economies.
The Promoting Women Leaders Globally in Economic Recovery project spanning late 2021 to early 2023 facilitated thematic and regional conferences and subgrants, supported six CIPE country offices to expand women’s economic empowerment efforts and served as an internal resource to integrate gender considerations through training.
