Virtual Roundtable - Gender-Smart Entrepreneurship Education and Training Plus Action Strategy
On March 23, 2021, this round table launched the Gender Entrepreneurship Education and Training Plus (GEET +), a multi-country project that mobilizes evidence-based insights in the development of entrepreneurship education and training as drivers of economic empowerment of girls, women, and other disadvantageous groups.
The GEET + is the work of Telfer School of Management’s Professors Barbara Orser and Catherine Elliott. Led by The Women's Economic Imperative and funded by the International Development Research Centre (Canada), the pilot project is being launched in Peru, Mexico, Kenya, and Nigeria.
The Telfer School of Management is committed to driving the design and delivery of inclusive entrepreneurship education and training to enhance the UN Sustainable Development Goals of gender equality and women’s economic empowerment. Telfer’s Inclusive Entrepreneurship scholars are informing research, practice, and policy to strengthen entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world.
