Care Matters: The Business, Policy and Gender Lens for Investing in Care

In recent years, there has been growing recognition of the urgency to support a sustainable, gender-transformative care economy with collaboration across governments, private sector and civil society. EMpower – The Emerging Markets Foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the University of Oxford will convene a roundtable, featuring Sharmi Surianarain from Harambee and Sabrina Habib from Kidogo for an action-oriented dialogue to discuss the constraints and opportunities of the care economy for development, livelihoods and businesses.

By bringing together perspectives and solutions from multiple stakeholders and sectors, this interactive roundtable will highlight challenges and exemplars and map out a trajectory for an effective care ecosystem to benefit multiple stakeholders – women, children, families, businesses and economies.
