Think Piece: Innovations in Childcare to Advance Women's Economic Empowerment

UN Women

Bringing together first-hand learnings from the Care Accelerator, a rapid policy assessment, and entrepreneurial landscaping, this document delves into the opportunities, challenges, and actions needed to leverage entrepreneurship as an innovative means to redress the unequal care burden and promote women's economic empowerment.

This Think Piece: Innovations in Childcare to Advance Women’s Economic Empowerment explores the question “Can inclusive Care Entrepreneurship be a pathway to address gaps in the childcare sector in Asia and the Pacific?”.  It offers promising entrepreneurship models emerging in Asia and the Pacific that could be replicated and scaled to fill childcare gaps to contribute to efforts to rebuild economies and to recognize the care economy as a vehicle to create more jobs and increase women’s economic participation.
