Washington, DC, United States
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
This workshop was organized by the Society for International Development Washington Chapter. Advancing women’s digital connectivity is key to promoting their empowerment in an increasingly digital world, but a digital divide is reinforcing, and even exacerbating, existing socioeconomic gaps between men and women. In this 3-person panel, IPA's Financial Inclusion Program Director, Rebecca Rouse reviewed preliminary results from an IPA study in the Dominican Republic looking at how women-specific credit scoring can be used to improve lending outcomes for low-income women borrowers. The panel also included presentations by representatives from Cell-Ed and USAID.
