| In 2016, the United Nations’ General Secretary set up a High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment (UNHLP), with the objective of making action-oriented recommendations on how to improve economic outcomes for women, promoting women’s leadership in driving economic growth, and galvanizing political will power. In order to adapt the insights from the panel to the Indian context, SEWA Bharat and the International Innovation Corps at the University of Chicago jointly hosted a roundtable discussion in April 2018, to consider emerging findings and deliberate on the questions that follow. The discussion brought together civil society, philanthropists, researchers, and international organizations, to discuss key questions pertinent to women’s economic empowerment. Insights and questions that emerged from the discussion are highlighted in this event report and video.
