The Global Partnership for Poverty and Entrepreneurship (GPPE) invites you to a Zoom webinar entitled "Rethinking Poverty, Entrepreneurship, and the Role of the Informal Sector" on Wednesday, March 8, 2023 from 11 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. ET (US).
In countries across the globe, the informal sector represents a significant component of the economy. For people in poverty, it can represent an important lifeline as a source of income. Yet, we understand relatively little about the role of the informal sector in helping to alleviate poverty. This webinar will explore the dynamic nature of this sector in both developing and developed economies. We will examine key issues surrounding informality and formalization when it comes to the development and outcomes of ventures created by those in poverty circumstances.
The webinar will feature:
- Dr. Kaveri Gill, Ph.D., Professor, Department of International Relations and Governance, Shiv Nadar University (India)
- Dr. Carla Canelas, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Economics, American University of Paris (France)
- Dr. Constance Gunhidzirai, Post-Doctoral Research Fellow, Centre for Social Development in Africa, University of Johannesburg (South Africa)
- Dr. Ariel Newman, Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship, Syracuse University (USA)
and be moderated by Michael H. Morris, Ph.D., Professor of Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation, Keough School of Global Affairs, University of Notre Dame (USA)
