“One of the smartest things anyone can do is invest in a woman. Why is that? The impact of an investment in a woman goes far beyond herself, but it contributes also to her family life and to the wider community.”
Removing barriers to gender equality in entrepreneurship and empowering women who own businesses could fuel massive global economic growth. Listen as Cherie Blair, Founder of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, and Shalini Unnikrishnan, BCG Managing Director and Partner, discuss the key levers to closing the gender gap.
We believe that investing in enhancing women entrepreneurs’ access to skills training and networks, will not only grow this generation of successful women entrepreneurs, but will also enable us to foster an entrepreneurship ecosystem where women can prosper.
Building on our successes, we aim to reach another 100,000 women by increasing the scale, breadth and impact of our work. To do this, our 100,000 Women Campaign will raise £10 million by 2022 from individuals, companies and institutions who share our vision of a world where women and men have equal access to entrepreneurship.You can find out more and join our 100,000 Women Campaign here.
