How to make actions for gender mainstreaming in entrepreneurship

Information: https://ngocsw67forum.events.whova.com/Agenda/2885734

National Federation of Business and Professional Women's Clubs of Japan (BPW Japan) will present this event. The concept of gender mainstreaming was raised in Beijing Platform for Action in 1995, about 30 years ago. However, it has been difficult for many organizations and government agencies to put this strategy into practice, at least in Japan. This event will show how to apply this strategy to actual practices by overviewing women’s entrepreneurship and the way of supporting it’s starts-up in Japan as examples. We will provide the platform for all participants to exchange their experiences, views, and information on the actual situation in each country in a small-group discussion format.

The questions participants discuss at a small group discussion are:

  1. Is female starting a business common in your country/community?
  2. What do you think is difficult in female starting a business?
  3. What kind of support is necessary for female starting a business?

Last Question which will be shared on Jamboard is:

What do you think is necessary to promote gender mainstreaming in entrepreneurship? 

Looking forward to seeing you !!
