How METIS works with Investing in Women.

- Continuous learning and improvement through evidence-based decision-making: The MEL Unit supports Investing in Women’s Business Coalition partners to regularly assess and adapt their strategies to improve workplace gender equality, including technical support to develop and maintain user-friendly performance monitoring and evaluation systems.
- Building and sharing the business case for investing in women: The MEL Unit provides Investing in Women management and its impact investing partners with credible and reliable data on the emerging business case for investing in women-owned and women-led small and medium enterprises, including developing and sharing a framework for gender lens investing with market builders and development partners.
- Accountability: The MEL Unit assists DFAT and Investing in Women management and directors to understand the practical impact and influence of its four program components on different dimensions of Women’s Economic Empowerment.
