Progress towards gender equality across Asia Pacific has been too slow, and has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. While governments and businesses respond to the emergency, investing in women makes smart economics by cutting across all socio-economic levels.

To move more capital towards women’s economic empowerment, AVPN is inviting Asia’s social finance community to a virtual Deal Share Live to learn from gender-lens practitioners and explore high-impact investable opportunities. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Hear from four women-led social enterprises based in the Philippines, who will showcase their inspirational businesses and share some of the challenges and opportunities they have experienced as entrepreneurs.
  • Interact with entrepreneurs through a live Q&A and have the opportunity to be connected with them after the webinar, should you wish to follow up on further engagement activities.

To enquire, please reach out to Dr. Arnil Paras at philippines@avpn.asia.
