The women’s Economic Empowerment-Community of Practice (WEE-CoP) is a three-year project funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and implemented by International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), to create a learning and sharing space for best practices in the WEE work. CoP members mainly constitute researchers who generate evidence to inform WEE policies and interventions. Our researchers on the Apprenticeship Internship and Mentorship (AIM) study shared their findings during the community’s quarterly meeting themed Skillset Development for Young Women on 10th March, 2022. You can watch the launch of the WEE community of Practice here.
We love Partnerships…
We recognize that to achieve meaningful, sustainable change in WEE, we cannot walk alone! Within the first year of our project, we have concretized partnerships with Tharaka Nithi County government, Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, Institute of Economic Affairs, Federation of Kenya Employers, Kenya Association of Manufacturers, among others.
We have established Research affiliations with Chuka University, UN women Geneva, Busara center for Behavioral Economics, Yale, and Strategic Impact, UK. We look forward to working together with many more like-minded institutions/organizations to champion the generation and use of gender data in policy and program implementation across the world.
