New York, NY (PRWEB) October 07, 2015
Goal 5 of the UN’s new Sustainable Development Goals is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. Gender equality is the key to economic growth.
Linda Scott is DP World Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. Linda is best known for her creation of the concept of the Double X Economy – a perspective which describes the global economy of women in both the developed and developing world, and the roles of women not only as consumers, but as investors, donors and workers. In a new interview with C. M. Rubin, author of The Global Search for Education, Scott discusses her research and concern for gender equality. Her thorough analysis of the global situation makes it clear that gender inequality is economically disadvantageous and she shares her tips for what educators and parents can do to combat gender inequality.
Why do you think it might be that some people continue to foster models of gender inequality? What innovations could be scaled globally to create a positive outcome to this global problem? What countries are making great progress on this front? What can we learn from them?
Scott notes that “Today, there are more women in higher education than men, both in Europe and the US. If these women do not find employment or are held back by prejudice, the investment in their education will be lost.”
