Women's Economic Empowerment with Amanda Donigi and others


This discussion is about women's economic empowerment with a focus on the Pacific region. Panelists include Amy Luinstra, Senior Gender Specialist at the International Finance Corporation who has been involved with the recently established Business Coalition for Women in Papua New Guinea -- the first organisation of its kind in the Pacific; Joanne Crawford, Research and Policy Adviser at the International Women's Development Agency (IWDA) and; Amanda Donigi, Founder and Editor of Stella Magazine in Papua New Guinea.

Globally women earn less than men and are less likely to be employed: they are only half as likely to be in full time jobs and when they are, their incomes are on average 10-30 percent lower. Meanwhile the latest Grant Thornton International Business Report indicates that the share of women in senior management roles, worldwide, is only 24 percent. Published on Jun 30, 2014
