        The SEEP Network and UN Women have teamed up to offer you a chance to engage with key experts on both conceptual and practical issues around women’s economic empowerment in inclusive market systems. Following an exceptionally well-attended first webinar in the "From Theory to Practice: Women’s Economic Empowerment in Inclusive Market Systems Development" series, we now begin diving into the practical implications of the theoretical approach that was presented in January. Now, enjoy the second webinar in the series! Missed the first webinar? You can catch up on it here. Studies show that businesses that actively promote gender equality and women’s empowerment within their core business model enhance the economic benefits to their company, while also reducing gender inequalities in the communities where the business works. This can create and reinforce a positive cycle of economic benefits to both a company and a community. This webinar and discussion thread examined the role of market systems facilitators in applying a market systems approach to women’s economic empowerment. It looked at how implementing organizations can promote inclusive business practices that empower women, what specific incentives can drive the private sector to adopt such practices, key lessons for selecting appropriate private sector partners, and how to effectively make the “business case.” There is an ongoing e-discussion on EmpowerWomen.org with the speakers and other experienced practitioners.

          'The Ripple Effect' shows how access to safe water has transformed the lives of rural women in Pakistan. When seasonal patterns began to change and rainfall became scarce, these women adopted methods of conserving rainwater. Not only do girls like Deeba no longer have to make the back breaking 8 kilometer journey to fetch water everyday, but they now have the freedom to pursue new opportunities and earn an income which they may invest in their children's futures. They continue to inspire the next generation of girls to conserve resources and use innovative methods to tackle an issue that affects over 2 billion people everyday.

            from Nelson Sebati Added 13 1 0

            Nelson Sebati explains that Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) is an Economic Empowerment initiative by the South African government in response to criticism against Narrow Based Empowerment instituted in the country during 2003/2004. While Narrow Based Black Economic Empowerment led to the enrichment of a few previously disadvantaged individuals (Black African, Coloured or Indian), the goal of Broad-Based Empowerment is to distribute wealth across as broad a spectrum of previously disadvantaged South African society as possible. In contrast, Narrow Based empowerment measures only equity ownership and management representation.
