    Session Description: Women living in resource poor settings face significant challenges on the path to entrepreneurship, in large part due to poverty and discriminatory social and cultural norms. Overcoming these challenges requires access to resources and finance, and they must also have the personal agency to exercise their rights and take advantage of opportunities to build their business - to move from knowledge to action. Our team at the Self-Empowerment and Equity for Change (SEE change) Initiative will share lessons learned to-date about scaling personal agency approaches, and highlight current avenues for research and program collaboration with SEE Change.

    More about the Speakers: Dr. Anita Shankar is an Associate Scientist in the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and is Executive Director and Lead Trainer for the Self-Empowerment and Equity for Change (SEE Change) Initiative. Paul Spurzem is a Lead Trainer and Program Director at SEE Change with a focus on communications, technology development and program management.
