For a 2nd year, GBSN is proud to provide unique entrepreneurship education-based workshops to two notable universities in Papua New Guinea, in partnership with the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) Papua New Guinea (PNG) program

This year, GBSN in partnership with CIPE PNG with support from the PNG-Aus Partnership, will be leading a workshop that is open to the entire GBSN global community, including university leaders from our Papua New Guinea network.

This workshop will be focusing on the role of higher education in addressing the reduction of gender inequality.  GBSN will be inviting leading business and gender ethics leaders from across the network to join guest speaker, Deputy Director of the CIPE Center for Women’s Economic Empowerment, Connie Gonzalez. 

The workshop will explore:

  • What the challenges are for addressing gender inequality in higher education
  • How gender equality shapes entrepreneurship education
  • The need for more female role models in higher education
  • What institutions can do to reduce gender inequality
  • Best practices for ensuring the progress and success of women
