About Us

Investing in Women

Investing in Women is an initiative of the Australian Government that catalyses inclusive economic growth by contributing towards women’s economic empowerment in South East Asia.

Established in 2016, Investing in Women uses innovative approaches to improve women’s economic participation as employees and as entrepreneurs and to influence the enabling environment to promote women’s economic empowerment in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Myanmar. Investing in Women focuses on the following pathways:

·       Workplace Gender Equality - We partner with influential businesses and coalitions to drive gender equality by shifting workplace culture and practices and support business to address policy barriers to advancing WGE.

·       Impact Investment for Women’s SMEs – We establish blended finance instruments with leading impact investors to move capital with a gender lens for women-owned and women-led Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and we develop partnerships with industry networks and strategic intermediaries to normalise gender lens investing principles across the growing impact investing field.

·       Influencing Gender Norms – We work with advocacy partners to shift harmful attitudes and practices that entrench discrimination against women in the world of work.
