Global Business Coalition for Education

2015 Webinar Series: Education 101

Girls Education Advocates at the African Union

Our Education 101 Webinar Series examines how business can accelerate progress in delivering quality education for all of the world’s children and youth.  

Topic 1: Girls’ Education is a #smartinvestment


Date: Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Time: 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT

Description: Over 30 million girls are denied their right to education.  At least two-thirds of these girls are never expected to enroll in school, and over 500 million girls will drop out before completing their basic education.  The odds are even worse for those girls living in conflict and emergency settings.  Through their voice, in-country networks, and existing programs, business leaders can ensure girls are completing school and reaching their full potential.

This webinar will provide an overview of:

  • Critical decision-making moments in education in 2015, where business can use their voice to champion girls’ education
  • The business case to engage in girls’ education, particularly in conflict and emergency zones
  • Examples of how companies are leading the way (e.g. working with our Girls’ Education Task Force)
