BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN DEVELOPMENT AND PRIVATE SECTOR EFFORTS: A NEW MODEL FOR GENDER LENS PARTNERSHIPS

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN DEVELOPMENT AND PRIVATE SECTOR EFFORTS: A NEW MODEL FOR GENDER LENS PARTNERSHIPS

In recognition of Global Partnerships Week and International Women’s Day, our Investment Director Suzanne Biegel writes about SPRING bridging the gap between development and private sector efforts to make the world a better place for adolescent girls living in poverty.

“On this 2016 International Women’s Day, think about girls and young women as customers and beneficiaries, but also as managers, micro-franchisees, sales agents, and producers of goods and services that make sense to them. Think about the types of cross-sector partnerships that can come from the desire of diverse actors to tap into innovation, new markets, new products, and customer insights. See girls and women differently. See them thrive. And see the potential that could be unleashed.”
