Webinar: Women’s Empowerment through Agricultural Entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa
No Labels! Tackled gender stereotypes that hold back women tech entrepreneurs in low and middle income countries.
In this webinar, we examined Women’s Empowerment through Agricultural Entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan Africa.
More than 60% of the women in sub-Saharan Africa work in agriculture, yet, many of these women do not have access to land and face challenges that undermine their economic rights and entrepreneurship opportunities.
This webinar is brought to you by Farm Africa and Cherie Blair Foundation for Women. Our expert panel of speakers will explore the state of entrepreneurship for women working in agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa and we’ll draw on Farm Africa’s work with women smallholder farmers in Tanzania and Cherie Blair Foundation for Women’s work empowering women to start, grow and sustain successful businesses.
