Pro Mujer continues developing initiatives to boost gender lens investment in Latin America. Earlier this year the organization started offering a wide array of consulting services through its Gender Knowledge Lab. Building on the expertise they have acquired over the last decades, Pro Mujer provides technical assistance to help the investment sector in investing with a gender lens and supports the public and private sectors -as well as civil society organizations- to incorporate gender mainstreaming strategies within their operations

Furthermore, next November Pro Mujer will host in Antigua, Guatemala, the third edition of the GLI FORUM LATAM, an event that aims to position Gender Lens Investment as an effective mechanism to advance equality and boost the development of regional economies.
