The Supporting Women’s Economic Empowerment in the Philippines or GREAT Women Project 2 is a project funded by the Government of Canada that seeks to improve the economic empowerment of women micro entrepreneurs (WMEs) and their workers through (1) improving competitiveness and sustainability of women’s micro enterprises, and (2) improving the enabling environment for women’s economic empowerment. The Philippine Commission on Women (PCW) serves as the lead executing agency for the project. It is being implemented in partnership with different national government agencies such as the Department of Trade and industry (DTI), Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE). The project also works with private sector partners such as Bayan Academy, ECHOSi Foundation, NATCCO and SEDP.
In line with the project’s aim to improve program implementation, make convergence work and achieve quick wins, the Project Steering Committee (PSC) approved the adoption of the new industry cluster approach in December 2017. The clusters identified under the new approach are: (1) Homestyle and Wearables (2) Coffee, (3) Cacao (4) Processed Fruits and Nuts and Selected High Value Crops, and (5) Information and Communications Technology or ICT businesses.
Considering this direction and the need to generate results, the Project Management Office is tasked to oversee implementation and strengthen coordination and partnership building with stakeholders. As such, it is vital to align with all partners on how to improve interventions as the project utilizes the new industry cluster approach structure. In this regard, the PCW-PMO is organizing an inter-agency planning workshop with representatives from all project partners. The goal is to gather all stakeholders per industry cluster and come up with an integrated work plan per cluster that is geared towards addressing the identified needs of the women micro entrepreneurs enrolled in the project.
The Planning Officers will serve as participants in the workshop to contribute to the discussions and generation of outputs. In view of this, the service of a Resource Person is needed to facilitate the Planning Workshop.
