Women business leaders have a tremendous impact on their markets, industries and communities through innovation, job creation and economic growth. However, their contributions are often lost in the prevailing narrative that women are over-represented among the poorest and most vulnerable entrepreneurs globally.
The GEM 2021/2022 Women's Entrepreneurship Report offers analysis of women’s entrepreneurship in 50 countries, 5 global regions, and 3 national income levels. It focuses on:
1. Gender differences in rates at various point in the entrepreneurial life cycle, from intentions thru start up activity, new business, established business and business exit;
2. Gender differences in COVID impacts, both positive and negative;
3. Structural inequalities and women’s participation in high potential startups; and
4. Factors in the enabling environment that likely influence gender differences in entrepreneurial activity.
The report launches on 18 November. Join us for a webinar on 21 November to hear the key report findings.
