    Webinar: The Skills We Really Need: The Impacts of The Educate! Experience, a Skills-Based Education Program for Secondary School Students in Uganda

    How do we give youth the skills to succeed in life? It’s a universal question, but one that has particular relevance in sub-Saharan Africa, where high school graduates face very limited formal job opportunities and often aren’t equipped with the relevant skills and knowledge to start their own businesses. Women face particular challenges in the educational, economic, and social spheres. One way to address these challenges may be to teach students the hard and soft skills required to be successful in their future work and lives. But can these skills, particularly soft skills—like self-control, persuasion, creativity, and grit—be taught to adolescents, and if so, what happens for youth who are equipped with these new skills? New and exciting results from a four-year evaluation shed light on these questions, offering new insights into what works.

    IPA will host an interactive webinar on The Skills We Really Need: The Impacts of a Soft Skills and Entrepreneurship Program for Secondary School Students in Uganda. In this webinar, Laura Chioda (World Bank) and Paul Gertler (University of California, Berkeley) will present on the 4-year findings from a randomized evaluation in Uganda of the Educate! Experience program, a social leadership and entrepreneurship skill development program targeting students during the last two years of secondary school. Meghan Mahoney and Hawah Nabbuye (Educate!) will present on the program and Educate!’s motivation for the evaluation, and Heidi McAnnally-Linz (IPA) will host and moderate.

    The presentations will be followed by a discussion and Q&A.

    Webinar: Expanding the Cashbox: Linking Saving Groups to Financial Services

    Join this special webinar to hear speaker Karen Lewin, Product Director of VisionFund International, as she presents the results and lessons learned by VisionFund in implementing a savings group linkage loan product in four countries: Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Zambia.

    The aim of the report is to share practical findings on keys to success in linking with savings groups in ways that improve household well-being and are sustainable and scalable. The report outlines the key risks for financial service providers (FSPs) in lending to savings groups (including portfolio quality, fraud and over-indebtedness) and describes practical ways of mitigating those risks.

    Webinar/Q&A: Seeking Authenticity in Impact Investing: A Year in Review

    Over the course of 2019, there has been a discernable, growing focus on “authenticity” in the impact investing and entrepreneurship space. As more and different types of capital — some of which is more unintentional and self-interested than conscious and mission-centric — enter the space, there has been an increasing interest in finding ways to maintain authenticity and keep impact investing “on mission”.

    In this 2019 Year in Review webinar, three impact investing luminaries address these and related questions:

    • What is authenticity in impact investing?
    • Is “impactwashing” (or “greenwashing”) a growing concern? If so, how can it be identified and, if necessary, called out?
    • How vulnerable are ESG practices in/reporting by public companies and ESG investing to impactwashing?
    • What is the relationship between personal authenticity/transformation and authentic impact investing?
    • What steps can impact entrepreneurs take to ground their businesses in authenticity and locate capital that is truly mission aligned?
    • How does the growing practice of place-based investing assist in grounding authenticity of impact? What are the challenges of maintaining authentic impact focus in this community-centric investing and entrepreneurship movement?
    • Why is authenticity essential for building a transformational impact economy?

    Webinar: Scaling Nutrition: Advancing the conversation

    In the global nutrition sector the focus on interconnectedness is omnipresent — but has this approach really worked in practice, at scale?
    As part of the Scaling Nutrition content series, Devex and The Eleanor Crook Foundation are hosting a digital event designed to spark a productive debate on scalable solutions to end global malnutrition by 2030. Devex Editorial Director, Richard Jones, will lead a nuanced conversation highlighting the tension between a push for more multisectoral approaches on one hand and the need for simplicity when designing for scale on the other.
