The Coalition for Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equality (CWEEE)

The Coalition for Women’s Economic Empowerment and Equality (CWEEE) is an advocacy coalition, launched in 2018, that seeks to advance women’s economic empowerment and equality as a foreign policy priority of the U.S. government and multilateral development institutions.

Our members are technical experts, implementing NGOs, advocacy-focused NGOs, and research organizations. And they are unified by the shared goals of advancing gender equality and advocating for meaningful investment in programs that address discrimination and propel women’s economic empowerment initiatives to the forefront.
