The Importance of Investing in Women
WHAT DOES WOMEN’S ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT MEAN?
Supporting women owned businesses is an incredible way to invest in women. This can be women in your local community to women in artisan communities around the world. While purchases are the most effective way to support these businesses; joining their community, becoming informed of the challenges facing women in the economic space, and sharing their mission are also great ways to invest.
Investing and supporting education for women and girls is another highly effective way to support women’s economic empowerment. As access to education and skills training increases, women have further opportunity to advance in their careers and be more resilient to changes in the job market.
Collective Humanity is founded by women and invests in the artisan women who craft their beautiful product. Investing and supporting this incredible artisan community of women is at the core of Collective Humanity.
As we can see, there is a huge opportunity to invest in women as valuable contributors to the global economy. In fact, The United Nation’s Women, states “Women’s economic empowerment boosts productivity, increases economic diversification and income equality in addition to other positive development outcomes.” Let us continue to invest in women. When we invest in women, we all rise.
