The business case for women’s empowerment

A business case can be defined as a justification for an action that is expected to make corporate processes more valuable. If companies are aware of the business case for women’s empowerment, they may be more interested in investing in it.

AgriProFocus and Fair & Sustainable have described a number of cases illustrating the business case for gender equality and women’s empowerment for companies. The cases describe experiences of different types of companies from all over the world. They are meant for staff of companies, and/or organisations working with companies, in the context of sustainable development initiatives.

The cases will allow the professionals to put gender equality concerns on the agenda of businesses by answering the following questions:

Why is gender inequality a problem for a business?

What strategies address gender-based constraints?

What are the benefits for the company and for women?

How can a company compare the costs of the strategies with the benefits?

Benefits for companies can be described in terms of Risk management, Cost reduction, Innovation and Growth, as is visualized in the picture below.

We will start publishing the cases on the AgriProFocus platform in the coming week. Each week a new case will be presented. Enjoy reading!
