BSR will support the Women's Economic Empowerment (WEE) Global Learning Forum, hosted by the SEEP Network in collaboration with Forum partners. This international convening on women’s economic empowerment will focus on bringing down the systemic barriers standing in the way of scalable and sustainable change. The Forum will bring together leading stakeholders in the field of women’s economic empowerment to facilitate dialogue, build global learning connections, and promote effective policy and practice to address the needs of vulnerable women all around the world.

The WEE Global Learning Forum intends to narrow the divide between best practices and informed policy decisions and aims to explore topics that are emerging as critical constraints to women’s economic empowerment across the globe.
