Women’s economic empowerment: Global Learning Forum in Thailand


WEE  Global Learning  Forum spans three days and takes place in Bangkok, Thailand from May 23-25, 2017. 159 organizations representing 61 countries, also from Armenia, have registered  for the Forum.  The Forum is designed to address challenges facing women’s economic empowerment by:


-Providing a venue for global dialogue across stakeholders, disciplines, approaches and frameworks, with potential for ongoing cross-learning;

-Promoting evidence-based research and discussion on key themes;

-Supporting the development of enabling policy and impactful program practice; and ultimately,

-Contributing to systems level change resulting in sustainable and scalable development outcomes for poor and marginalized women.


The WEE Global Learning Forum intends to narrow the divide between best practices and informed policy decisions and aims to explore topics that are emerging as critical constraints to women’s economic empowerment across the globe. The agenda of the Forum will focus on three themes:


  • The Rural Poor: Women’s Empowerment on and off the Farm
  • Employment Opportunities through Enterprise Development and Job Creation
  • Women’s Financial Inclusion: Leveraging Finance to Advance Women’s Empowerment


Why are we talking about Women’s Economic Empowerment?


Evidence supporting the need to empower women’s economic participation is only growing by the day. Women play multifaceted roles in market systems, as smallholder farmers, employees and owners of business enterprises, clients of financial institutions, and unpaid care workers among many others.
