USAID Regional Development Mission for Asia Michael Yates addresses the Gender Lens Investment Forum in Bangkok.
March 12, 2015

Greetings, all. I’d like to start by thanking sincerely panelists Boots, Su-Mei,  Leena, and Shalaka for helping us to better understand how investors, women entrepreneurs, women’s rights activists, and development practitioners are engaging in the field of gender lens investing in Asia. They’ve helped us to better appreciate how important it is to link gender expertise with philanthropic, investment, and government funding, for the greater social good. I read an article recently in the New York Times by Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer, who in her bestselling book calls on women to “lean in” at work and embrace the will to lead.  She’s also calling for a new way to advocate for gender parity.  She writes: “We need to go further and articulate why equality is not just the right thing to do for women but the desirable thing for us all.”
