Women at the Forefront of Economic Prosperity in the 21st Century
Inter-American Development Bank (IDB)
Women and girls represent half of the world’s population and, therefore, half of its potential. Increasingly, business leaders and governments are paying more attention to this economic, social and financial engine. The private sector offers a unique opportunity to increase profits and sustainability through the empowerment of women, both in business leadership roles, as well as in the value chains of corporations. This document presents three solutions that the IDB Group has developed through studies and programs in LAC. It also showcases the benefits that these solutions can bring to those companies that adopt them.
