The Key functions of the Hub are to:
In collaboration with our partners, be thought leader in each of the four work cluster areas, which are Affirmative Action Funds and entrepreneurship; Women in formal and informal employment; Child care and women’s work; and Women’s movement and policy advocacy for WEE. Drawing from a multi-disciplinary team of scholars in economics, women’s studies, law, business studies and development studies, the hub will produce foundation research to understand what matters for women’s economic empowerment and understand pathways that enable women’s work. It will provide expertise to policy makers, researchers and other stakeholders in these four program areas.

The WEE Hub will work collaboratively with civil society, the women’s movement and relevant government departments to generate cutting edge data to strengthen generation and use of evidence to advance WEE and gender equality in Kenya, which will be used to provide innovative policy and research ideas in the four cluster areas. Further, the WEE Hub will build the necessary infrastructure for the scale up of these innovative ideas, build demand for evidence and ensure it informs policies, programs and public discourse. As a thought leader, the WEE Hub will contribute towards shaping the agenda for WEE in Kenya, and influencing policy development and implementation.
