Women face special challenges when starting and growing a business.
Accelerators provide mentorship and training. However, many are unduly tailored to the needs of men. Including more women as mentors, investors, and jury members can help to attract more women entrepreneurs and better meet their needs.
Are you running or planning a project that integrates a gender-lens approach into programme design?
The new handbook by the Sector Project on Sustainable Economic Development tells you how to go about it. It is an interactive resource equipping you with knowledge, strategies, tools, resources and GIZ project examples. In addition, these short Project design guidelines for GIZ Advisors help GIZ staff at Headquarters to integrate a gender-lens accelerator programme in project design right from the start.
