Women constitute half of the world population, they are not represented in labour market at the same rate. WISED will focus over the next 2 years to developing social awareness that can foster social innovation. One of the most important aspects of social development is diversity. So, women as a group bring a critical dimension to increase the potential for innovation.
Women have a talent for thinking long term: Women are probably very wired to think in a long term way and that helps to build a protective world, a world that connects and cares, and weaves resources for good and for the future. It doesn’t mean that men don’t/can’t do it, they just have a more linear way of delivering. We need both systems to work well.
