Localizing Evidence in Women’s Access to Higher Education: Part 2 of the HELN Access and Equity Web Event Series
The new USAID Expanding Women’s Access to Higher Education Primer presents global evidence to improve access to, retention in, and completion of higher education for women. However, women’s access to higher education is highly disparate based on geographic location, and practices, evidence, and learning are dependent on local higher education systems and cultures. During this event, the Higher Education Learning Network (HELN) will facilitate discussions on barriers and promising practices that support women’s access to higher education. Your engagement will inform regionally-contextualized learning documents.
Kindly note: This will be a highly interactive event. Participants should expect to spend a majority of the time in a breakout room discussion.
Participants should read the primer in advance and prepare to share any examples or evidence they have on the topic.
