Program Design

Applying a gender lens to program design is important to ensure that your program adds equal value to all entrepreneurs, regardless of gender, and that your logistics don’t prevent any entrepreneurs from fully participating in it.

What's involved in program design?

The program is the accelerator or incubator’s key product or service. Although it can vary in design, it tends to involve a mix of education, mentorship, networking and direct or indirect financing opportunities. How these components are delivered can also differ depending on the organisation, with programs varying in duration, structure and mode of delivery. Ensuring all entrepreneurs, regardless of gender, have an equal opportunity to access and engage with your program, is key to your organisation’s ability to impact the growth of your entrepreneurs and therefore to you achieving your business and social impact outcomes.
