This webinar will focus on ways to advance a local economy by leveraging women’s energy enterprises. Women play a key role in expanding energy access in last-mile communities, yet they are still underrepresented in the energy product and service supply chain. In this webinar, researchers will discuss recent evidence that shows investing in women energy entrepreneurs is good for women, their families, and the growth of their businesses. In addition, presenters will share lessons learned from practitioners on how to best support women energy entrepreneurs in order to maximize their success.
