Investing in Inclusion Certificate
The Investing in Inclusion courses are created for professionals from any discipline – be it consulting, accounting, law, public policy, media, technology, education or finance – and equips them with practical and conceptual knowledge about gender-lens impact investing, and how to incorporate a gender-lens into their organizational thinking and business approach.
Why Invest in Inclusion?
Around the world, women and underserved communities are standing up for greater equality and systemic change. Individual and organizational leaders have the opportunity to drive sustainable growth by investing in inclusion and using business as a force for good. As organizations strive to achieve diversity to boost performance, claiming gender balance is no easy feat especially when there is no one-size-fits-all solution. A cluster of deeply rooted problems – stemming from systemic, structural and cultural perspectives – lie at each juncture of business processes regardless of sector and geography.
