This lunch will bring together delegates focused on gender issues across the Asia Pacific region to participate in a networking lunch at the AVPN conference.
In a relaxed environment, we encourage delegates to discuss some of the ways they are utilising social finance to support women entrepreneurs. What are the impact themes around gender that they are targeting as investors and the current state of gender lens impact investing across Asia? This is an opportunity to share some of the innovations seen in philanthropy and social investing in the gender sector across the region.
The lunch will also feature an introduction to Investing in Women – an initiative of the Australian Government – by their CEO, Dr. Julia Newton-Howes. Abhilash Mudaliar, Director of Research at the GIIN, will also share insights from their soon-to-be published Southeast Asia Landscape Report, with market intelligence on gender lens investing
