Global opportunities for women to join the formal economy, launch enterprises that create jobs for others, and grow as leaders in their fields have never been greater.
However, significant obstacles remain. With a holistic understanding of country and regional enabling environments and gender dynamics, Nathan works with clients to navigate legal and regulatory constraints, cultural norms and stereotypes, conscious and unconscious bias in educational and industrial systems, and the unyielding burden of unpaid care. Our experts provide deep insights into how to create and sustain “ecosystems” of empowerment that expand women’s access to property, capital, education, markets, and technology and help economies become more productive, dynamic, and innovative through women’s inclusion. We develop data driven policy recommendations to better impact and measure key issues within women’s economic engagement and inclusion.
