About CIPE
The Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) strengthens democracy around the globe through private enterprise and market-oriented reform. CIPE is one of the four core institutes of the National Endowment for Democracy and an affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Since 1983, CIPE has worked with business leaders, policymakers, and civil society to build the institutions vital to a democratic society. CIPE’s key program areas include enterprise ecosystems, democratic governance, business advocacy, anti-corruption & ethics, trade and women’s economic empowerment.

Project Overview

CIPE is implementing a project to support women’s organizations in two regions of Morocco to lead a women-led process called a Women’s Regional Business Agenda (WRBA). The WRBA is a proven methodology that empowers women in the economy by organizing women in the private sector and leveraging their voices for collective action.  Bottom-up consultations with women and stakeholders, including marginalized groups, produce a roadmap of reforms to address legal, regulatory and/or even social barriers. As the WRBA process creates momentum for reforms, it also increases the presence of women in the public sphere, expressing their own priorities and advocating their own needs. Moreover, as organizations lead in the civic space, CIPE helps them develop stronger economic and business services for the women they serve. The result is empowered women’s organizations, empowered businesswomen members, and an ever-improving environment where they can access economic resources and opportunities. A regional agenda will also resonate well in Morocco, where there has been a steady push towards regionalization and decentralization of decision making.
