Centre for Social Impact Swinburne

Building Connections for Enterprising Women

In partnership with Good Shepherd Microfinance and working closely with colleagues at Swinburne Sarawak, this project brings together practitioners and researchers with expertise in women’s enterprise development in two very different regional contexts: Sarawak and Victoria.  Through a series of forums, roundtables and videoconferences to share expertise, the project is mapping the enterprise development ecosystem and creating a platform for long-term strategic collaboration among research and practice organisations that support women’s economic inclusion.
