The Potential of HR & Ed Techs for Promoting Women's Retention and Professional Growth
Report 2: The Potential of HR and Ed Techs for Promoting Women's Retention and Professional Growth
Technology-based companies working in human resources
(HRTech) and education (EdTech) are potentially one of the most powerful
growth engines for Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). ALIVE Ventures and Value for Women's latest report looks at how HRTech and EdTech firms are uniquely positioned to support gender inclusion and to contribute to increasing women’s ability to access professional training and formal employment. This two-part report is the first of its kind to be focused on Latin America.
Some HRTechs and EdTechs are already catalyzing gender inclusion in retention and professional growth, offering solutions that address key gender-related barriers.
This volume (ii) draws from conversations with over 30 tech companies, regional specialists, intermediary organizations, consultations with over 100 women, and an extensive literature review to look at how HRTech and EdTech firms can better contribute to increasing women’s retention and professional growth in the workplace.
This study was made possible primarily with funding from the Dutch Good Growth Fund.
ALIVE invests in high-growth companies that are leveraging technology and/or other game-changing innovations to address economic inequality and transform the lives of low-income communities across Latin America.
