SF is working with Value for Women to present the business case of gender inclusion strategies for SMEs in the off-grid energy sector.
The lessons emerging, based on the first 11 months of testing approaches of SF’s portfolio of enterprises explore the potential impact to businesses, including:
- How SMEs can integrate and adopt gender inclusion approaches
- How SMEs that are operating in emerging markets have a unique opportunity to apply a gender lens, and how this has the potential for both business and social impacts
- What is needed for businesses to take a holistic approach to gender, how can they do this, and what are the potential impacts
