Care Matters: The Business, Policy and Gender Lens for Investing in Care

Happening in London   |   Share


On April 9th, EMpower hosted a roundtable titled "Care Matters: The Business, Policy, and Gender Lens for Investing in Care" at the Oxford Martin School in the UK, in collaboration with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the University of Oxford.

As a Skoll World Forum Side Event, this in-person roundtable featured distinguished speakers including EMpower's very own Dr. Nisha Dhawan, Dr. Diva Dhar from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and Dr. Christian Meyer from the University of Oxford. We were also honoured to welcome Sharmi Surianarain from Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator and Sabrina Habib from Kidogo, who shared their insights on the constraints and opportunities of the care economy for development, livelihoods and businesses.

The event spotlighted the challenges, showcased exemplars, and charted a course towards an effective care ecosystem that benefits women, children, families, businesses, and economies alike.
