Supporting Public Advocacy for Regional Competitiveness: Economic Advocacy
STRATEGIES! provides facilitation services for regional meetings of SPARC partners, as well as individualized technical support for each of the 4 campaigns. We are working with partners in Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, and Uganda to increase women’s economic opportunity and ensure gender equality in the private and public sectors.
Through our work, partners in Kenya have engaged the national government in providing more government procurement opportunities to women business owners. In Nigeria, our partner is advocating for gender parity on the nations largest corporate boards. Our Uganda partner has worked closely with the Ministries of Finance and Agriculture to increase women’s access to farming technical services and government resources. In South Africa, our partner is working to create equal opportunities for women in the economic sphere at the national and regional SADC level.
