We would like to invite you to a Roundtable Discussion on: Women and Business /Entrepreneurship and Advocacy Challenge on fewer women leadership roles.

The discussion will include various women entrepreneurs and part of the panel will be Elizabeth Ngonzi, the CEO of Afrika Tikkun USA which is the US affiliate of local NGO Afrika Tikkun, which has been going strong for 20 years.

Ngonzi is in the country to meet with various stakeholders both in the public and private sector.

She will be part of the panel discussing how despite the growing number of initiatives and resources made available to develop women’s entrepreneurship in developing countries, women still own and manage fewer businesses than men, they earn less money with their businesses that grow slower, are more likely to fail and women tend to be more necessity entrepreneurs.

Some of the questions she will be assisting in answering is:

1. What are best practices and instruments of private sector development programs that are effective for women entrepreneurs globally that can be adopted with our context.

2. What works in terms of collaboration and market-driven practices for women’s entrepreneurship promotion?

3. How do we measure women empowerment impact, and what is the return on investment in women entrepreneurs?

4. How can entrepreneurial ecosystems support startup, growth, and sustainability of women’s entrepreneurship?

Venue: Business Partners, 37 West Street, Houghton
Date: Friday August 7 2015
Time: 09:00am – 12:00pm

Please RSVP to masotemms@state.gov or call 072 690 1774
