Generating evidence on women’s economic empowerment, gender equality and growth in low-income countries 

The Department for International Development (DfID), The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) are pleased to announce the jointly-funded research initiative Growth and Economic Opportunities for Women (GrOW).Deadline: October 25, 2013 at 4:59 EDT (Ottawa time)

The ultimate goal is to enhance economic outcomes and opportunities for poor women in low-income countries. GrOW focuses on women’s economic empowerment — in labour markets, entrepreneurship, and the care economy — and the connections between women’s economic empowerment, gender equality, and patterns of economic growth in low-income contexts.
