Caribou Data will present an analysis of how “Digital Kenyans” engage with financial services through the mobile phone. Using privacy-preserving anonymization techniques, we paint a nuanced and demographically representative portrait of financial behaviors, including frequency and value of transaction types, average fees paid, and flows into and out of the digital wallet. To ground the analysis, we use an illustrative segmentation comparing “borrowers” vs. “savers” and frequent vs. infrequent users. Register here to join the conversation.

More than 1/3 of people will experience gender based violence (GBV) in their lifetimes. Annual productivity losses caused by sexual harassment alone in a typical Fortune 500 company are estimated to be around US$6.7 million. In June this year, a new ILO convention could be adopted which will require governments and employers to systematically address violence, including gender based violence, and harassment in the world of work.
Companies are engaging with the issue and introducing policies to reduce incidences of GBV and its effects, but GBV still has a high prevalence, the work can be fragmented and business insight of successful actions is sparse. This online written discussion aims to shed light on the ways companies can and are pro-actively engaging with gender based violence.
We are bringing together experts from across sectors and global regions to share their insights and experience. This discussion will be useful to you, whether you are from an organisation taking your first steps in trying to understand how gender based violence affects your business, right through to those who have been expertly working on this topic for some time. You can expect practical learnings, real insight and peer support.
Join us on Thursday 28 March, 15:00-16:00 GMT / 11:00-12.00 EDT, for a live written online discussion with a panel of experts to explore the role business can play in addressing issues around gender-based violence.
