This is the evidence base for real change
At the Women’s International Centre for Economic Development, we know that the key to affecting real change is to prove our case with a solid body of knowledge and academic research. By bringing together a comprehensive evidence base, we can influence policy and inspire change where it really counts, creating new opportunities and empowering women to fulfil their true potential.
We have access to a wide range research reports and academic papers that show what can be achieved when women are empowered and enabled to play and active role in economic life, demonstrating the positive effect that women’s enterprise can have for individuals, communities and economies alike. It also demonstrates the many challenges that still stand in the way of that progression in the workplace, and in wider society, and illustrates the urgent need for change. We support the research community by connecting them to potential research respondents, businesses and entrepreneurs.
