Women Entrepreneurs’ Associations ( WEA ) Capacity Building Guide
The Women Entrepreneurs’ Association Capacity Building Guide (WEA Capacity Building Guide) has been developed by the International Labour Organization’s Women Entrepreneurs’ Development and Gender Equality (ILO-WEDGE) team. It is a training package designed to assist Women Entrepreneurs’ Associations (WEAs) to run and improve their associations.
The WEA Capacity Building Guide covers different topics on creating a successful WEA and uses practical activities and discussions to create awareness on gender inequality and gender specific issues. The emphasis is on building the capacity of the associations, and on strengthening their ability to serve their women members.
Ensure that women are effectively represented in mixed Small Business Associations (SBAs).
- To create awareness regarding gender inequalities faced by women entrepreneurs and suggest ways of addressing these challenges through the creation of gender sensitive services in WEAs and SBAs
- To ensure that women entrepreneurs have greater access to representation and voice in their business affairs and in influencing the policies and decisions that affect them.
- To guide women in the formation and managing of a member-based business association.
- To build the administrative, organisational, technical and financial capacities of new and existing associations to enable them to better serve their members.
- To promote links between WEAs regionally and internationally, and foster linkages with other key private sector actors (e.g. employers’ organisations).
Target Group -
The guide is aimed at women and men involved in existing WEAs and SBAs with an expressed interest in improving and developing their associations. By improving WEAs and SBAs, participants will in turn assist other women entrepreneurs by providing better services, more training and further support in their business endeavours.
