02.15.2022 | Annual Reports

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’s Leadership in the Economy Project in 2020, funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, promoted proven program models for women’s economic empowerment and continued to build a gender mainstreaming resource bank to improve the ability of local partners to address the barriers to women’s participation in their economies. The project ran from July 1, 2020 to November 30, 2021. The 2020 Project Objectives included:

  • To promote leadership, networking, and collective action on issues of regional and global urgency for women in the economy
  • To integrate women’s economic empowerment in CIPE programming as a key organizational value of inclusion

CIPE is pleased to publish the final results of this initiative in collaboration with its many partners around the globe.
