Integrating Gender Equity Into Your Portfolio

The Gender-Smart Enterprise Assistance Research Coalition (G-SEARCh) is a group of six like-minded impact investors that strive to build the evidence and a strong business case for investing with a gender lens. The Coalition’s research spanned 31 Technical Assistance (TA) engagements across 21 small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and analyzed the business and social outcomes of seven different types of TA engagement.

This session will share these lessons learned and then pick up where the research ends to explore how investors and SMEs can identify, structure, and implement best practices in advancing gender equity, whether through TA or individual and industry efforts.
