WISE Development has been supporting a range of programmes to integrate gender equality and women’s empowerment, specifically women’s economic empowerment, since 2001. Recent work on social enterprise and social movements has added to our learning. We have found that culture, attitudes and behaviours within programme teams and within companies influence how well they can integrate approaches for gender equality and women’s empowerment.
