More businesses achieve gender equality in their workplace.
Who We Are
As a champion for women and girls, Investing in Women was established to improve women’s economic participation, build markets for women and influence the private and public sector environment to promote women’s economic empowerment in the Philippines, Vietnam, Myanmar and Indonesia.
We work with businesses and impact investors to achieve business and workplace gender equality, and partner with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, and programmes to ensure institutional and regulatory standards are effectively implemented and benefit women and girls. We also support the Sustainable Development Goals to be a reality for women and girls, and stand behind women’s equal participation in all aspects of life.
Investing in Women focuses on the following priority areas:
- Improving women’s participation in the workforce, and as business leaders
- Enhancing women’s voice in decision making and leadership
- Influencing the private and public sectors to recognise and promote the value of gender equality
The initiative is being implemented by Abt Associates Australia — a mission-driven, global leader in research, evaluation and implementing programs in health, social and environmental policy, and international development — in partnership with Ernst and Young, Metis Analytics and the University of Sydney.
