w@tt co-hosts World Bank Group launch of Women,Business & the Law 2018
Women@theTable is so pleased and proud to have partnered with the World Bank Group's office in Geneva on 17 and 18 September to produce three events to highlight the uses of the fundamental and fabulously useful World Bank Group dataset on Women, Business and the Law.
We know no economy can grow to its full potential unless both women and men participate fully. As half the world’s population, women have an equal role in driving economic growth. Women, Business and the Law (WBL) is a World Bank Group project collecting unique data on the laws and regulations that restrict women's economic opportunities. Since 2009, WBL has enhanced the study of gender equality and informed discussions on improving women's economic opportunities and empowerment. The dataset offers objective and measurable benchmarks for global progress toward gender equality.
Comparable across economies, the data is useful for research and policy discussions on improving women's economic opportunities. Now in its fifth edition, WBL has expanded coverage to 189 economies and 7 topics relevant to women's economic participation.
