Call for Research Proposals- Reducing the Gender Gap

In 2016, Compete Caribbean conducted research into how the gender composition of ownership and management affected firm performance in the Caribbean. This research suggested that women-owned firms are significantly smaller, less likely demand credit from financial institution, less likely to take advantage of technical assistance and more likely to perceive access to finance as an obstacle to their businesses.

To this effect, the overarching objective of this call for papers is to stimulate original analytical pieces focused on why women-owned firms in the Caribbean face these challenges.
