Women's Economic Empowerment at FHI 360

May 2019 — This fact sheet highlights FHI 360’s economic participation programs specifically targeting women and girls and our approach to improving women’s economic participation and leadership opportunities. Our integrated solutions engage women, men and youth in examining shifting gender norms, reducing gender-related stigma and addressing systemic barriers to enable women to reach their full economic potential. We support women to improve their capacities, productivity, earnings, profits and work experiences by creating career pathways, strengthening women’s cooperatives and entry to market, identifying and building skills to capitalize on livelihoods opportunities, increasing financial inclusion, supporting policy reform and providing access to the latest technologies. Our programs ensure that women and girls are prepared with labor market information, skills and networks needed to get a job, be self-employed or be an effective and sustainable entrepreneur.
