Skilling, Reskilling, and Upskilling: Bridging the Manufacturing Workforce Gender Gap

22 June 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Following the launch of the first ever study on women in manufacturing in Kenya in 2020, the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW) is pleased to invite you to a webinar on bridging the gender gap in the Kenyan manufacturing sector. While women and girls make up over 50% of Kenya’s populations, women constitute only 17% of the workforce.
