Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment Through Education in Jordan

Education has the potential to meaningfully transform individual lives and communities globally. What does this practically look like in a unique country context, and what are the opportunities and challenges that present themselves on the ground? Join us for a session to learn about how an education program focused on women’s economic empowerment in Jordan, with support from Canada, has spurred the creation of a women’s business incubator and supported women’s entrepreneurship and women-led businesses.

You will have an opportunity to hear from the leader of a non-governmental organization making a difference in the ground in Amman, as well as two women entrepreneurs who are successfully bringing their incubated ideas to market while navigating the complexities of life and work during a global pandemic.
