Giving Women’s 7th Annual Conference

Every year Giving Women organises a conference which focusses on a particular theme. This year we decided that it is time to take a critical and deep look at livelihood creation for women at the bottom of the pyramid, identify the best practices and understand the reasons for the slow progress of women up the economic ladder. We will address issues such as the limitations and opportunities of vocational training leading to employment versus access to finance and enterprise development.

The Giving Women conference is a half-day event with an attendance of approximately 120- 150 participants from the philanthropic, business and development worlds.

The purpose of the conference is to address a broad audience and expose what is happening in the area of women’s livelihood creation, show best practices, and bring different actors together from UN and International organisations, NGOs, Civil Society and private sector to inform, share, reflect and act.
