My Journey as Champion for Change 2016/2017

Kenya

Economic Empowerment has always been a priority to me and I invest a lot of time trying to look for ways of making it real in our generation and especially to women and youth who are  more vulnerable and marginalized with less  equitable opportunities.

My journey became more interesting when I joined Empower Women's network and later I was selected as a champion for change 2016/2017.Reading articles and resources of women around the world from Empower Women platform,has given me a different perceptive and a better understanding of how well we can empower women for them to still relevant in a very competitive environment.

One of the things that have learned as a champion for change is that the key towards the journey of economic empowerment is Skills development.To be more precise two major skills are very important in the life of every woman who is ready to become economically empowered and these two are: Digital and Financial literacy.

Women equal and meaningful participation in the digital society is seen as both integral to the realization of women rights in the 21st Century as well as realization of a just ,inclusive and rights based information society and an achievement to  global objectives around equality and women economic empowerment.

From a lot of interaction have had with women for those months in my championship have observed that, unless women become wiser in making investment and savings, wealth creation and financial stability remain a distant dream. But through continuous training and awareness the excitement of behavioral change  becomes so real." Financial literacy helps in developing economy and ultimately encourages growth (Worthington, 2006) and empowers women”

As I conclude I believe every woman can be trained and their skills developed.This will further fill the inequality gap because the gender inequality women face ripples down to everyone and costs economies millions, even billions per year when women are not given an opportunity to contribute. According to the World Economic Forum, reducing gender inequality will ultimately enhance productivity and economic growth, which will lead to a better standard of living for everyone. (UNICEF)

    Women empowerment' to me means sexism. Coming from the women that condone it, and the men that detest it. Bad, bad choice. I don't really see what rights women don't get anymore... Women get every top job available on par with men.  Assignment help
