Chat with These Social Enterprises on July 30th
We’re only two weeks away from our next Beyond Borders conversation during which a few of our early-stage Ventures will share their unique experiences in the recent Gendered Lens Investing pilot.
Being early-stage businesses, most of them had no prior experience in thinking about gender. They used the pilot to explore opportunities for catalyzing and prioritizing gender work, increasing internal gender skills, and encouraging gender-related conversations and awareness across their organisations.
Needless to say, we are very proud of the Ventures’ commitment to developing a strong base for operating with a gendered lens and we hope this conversation can provide context for other entrepreneurs and investors seeking to understand the opportunities in integrating gender inclusion for business.
