Empowering Women in Business While in Transition
August 11, 2014
Hosted by Desiree Watson
Empowering Women in Business While in Transition- will be our discussion topic at The Wellness Lounge, A Step Further 9 a.m. E.S.T. Monday when host Desiree Watson welcomes guest Jean Oursler to the show. Jean Oursler is an entrepreneur and Facilitator for Women President Organization. Decades of empirical evidence and practical experience support the robust associations between women’s educational attainment and positive development outcomes. It is now conventional wisdom in development discourse that where education levels are higher among women, fertility rates are lower, family size is smaller, and women’s health and economic status are stronger. There is even evidence to suggest that insettings where education is more gender equitable,economic growth is more robust. What is less understood is how the education of girls and young women translates into positive development outcomes. We argue that it is the healthier, safer transition of adolescent girls to adulthood and their empowerment during this process that are, in fact, the linchpins between education and improved outcomes at the individual, community and societal levels. Tune in Monday, 9 a.m. for the live interview on the Wellness Lounge, A Step Further on the VoiceAmerica Empowerment channel.
