Syed Shoaib Hasan Rizvi • TEDxWesternU
The Intersection of Sustainable Development: Gender and Poverty
The intersection of gender and socioeconomic status positions poor women at the greatest disadvantage, faced with compounding barriers. Rizvi’s organization provides microloans and skills training to rural women in Pakistan to achieve financial independence. Rizvi calls on stakeholders to invest in women to build inclusive and sustainable economies. An empowered woman can further her education, find new opportunities and uplift her family and community.
