Women's Entrepreneurship Finance Series - Designing Global Measures for Women's Economic Empowerment

Many benefits are expected to accrue from programs for women—but how do we capture and measure actual results?

Matching metrics to expectations is more difficult than we often think. Yet corporate players are frequently criticized for measuring their programs in terms of deliverables, not impact, and distilling their work into glossy anecdotal reports, rather than sober statistics.

In this talk, Professor Scott addresses the puzzles and challenges she has observed in trying to design programs and measurements for women’s empowerment. She focuses particularly on private sector efforts, including her work with Walmart’s Empowering Women Together program.
