Women Series: COVID-19 Implications On Women Entrepreneurs-Supporting WSMEs
The COVID-19 Pandemic has shed spotlight on existing gender inequalities in employment and entrepreneurship as women continue to bear the brunt of the pandemic.
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD), SMEs, including women-owned, have been hit hard by the pandemic as they have higher levels of vulnerability and less resilience and flexibility in dealing with the costs that surviving the COVID-19 crisis entails.
This edition of the 'Women Series' anchored by Taiwo Adeoti discusses COVID-19 Implications on women entrepreneurs - Supporting SMEs and Women-owned businesses in corporate value chains.
It brings updates from a recent webinar hosted by the International Finance Corporation and Nigeria Stock Exchange under the Nigeria2Equal program, convening listed companies and the private sector to explore strategies for better integrating WSMEs in corporate value chains.
