NOT STRICTLY BUSINESS

IMPROVING WOMEN'S ENTREPRENEURSHIP THROUGH SOFT-SKILLS TRAINING AND ENGAGEMENT OF MEN
Tackling barriers for women's success as entrepreneurs requires a holistic, or ecosystem approach. This means bundling access to finance with improvement of business skills as well as soft-skills such as leadership and decision-making. This also includes promoting peer-to-peer learning and tailored coaching for women. This combination of supports will help women overcome the unique barriers they face, and in turn, lead to more successful start-up and growth of enterprises by women. Partnering with skilled facilitators who have experience in management of gender dynamics, and who can effectively and safely challeng harmful gender norms or behaviours will be essential.
