Words of welcome
Patrick Gouka,
CBI Programme Manager
Africa & Middle East

In an age when global earning, welfare and literacy statistics are heavily weighted against women, gender equality has never been so important. But moving forward, CBI intends to make it one of three policy themes in its strategy up to 2018. In addition to making gender issues an integral part of its value chain analyses, programmes and projects, CBI will also be reaching out to its partners, and to NGOs with prior experience of levelling the playing field for both men and women.
