The IGC is celebrating its 10-year anniversary by showcasing our most transformational growth ideas from the past decade. Running until December 2019, each week will focus on a key component of economic growth. This week focuses on women’s economic empowerment.

In developing countries, unemployment and underemployment are high and jobs are often poorly paid and unstable, trapping people in poverty and hindering economic growth. IGC research aims to understand how to create productive jobs and foster effective labour markets to ensure inclusive growth.
