Women’s Entrepreneurship Development

Young women in particular often face multiple barriers and constraints when they are in the process of starting up a small business. Gender inequality and gender discrimination in the labour market is common in many countries and is one of the major inhibiting factors to the goal of decent and productive work for all women and men. The ILO’s Women Entrepreneurship Development (WED) strategy promotes targeted approaches and tools to ensure that women and men have equal access to entrepreneurship and decent work opportunities. The family of Women’s Entrepreneurship Development and Gender Equality (WEDGE) training programmes are plenty with key one such as the support to Growth Oriented Women Entrepreneurs (GOWEs), Gender and Entrepreneurship Together: Get Ahead for Women in Enterprise (GET Ahead), the gender sensitive value chain analysis (GSVCA), the Improve Your Exhibition Skills (IYES) and the WED capacity building guide for service providers.
