Join the Americas Society and Council of the Americas for a breakfast discussion with Sarah Iqbal, program coordinator at the World Bank, as she presents the fourth edition of the Women, Business and the Law global report series. Women, Business and the Law measures how laws, regulations, and institutions differentiate between women and men in ways that may affect women’s incentives or capacity to work or to set up and run a business. It provides data on legal and regulatory barriers to women’s entrepreneurship and employment in 173 economies, covering seven areas: accessing institutions, using property, getting a job, providing incentives to work, building credit, going to court, and protecting women from violence.
