Empowering women in developing countries

Lacerta's amazing team of 6 global consultants, led by Caryn Vanstone and Niel Stander, are proud to be partners with the amazing BIMA, LeapFrog Labs and FMO Entrepreneurial Development Bank, to bring to life an inspiring global programme of female empowerment in developing countries.  BIMA aim to change in the way women are able to contribute and participate in the workplace in countries as far afield as Paraguay and Fifi, by way of Africa, India and more.

Leapfrog (ranked at number 5 in the Fortune’s “Change the World” list) and FMO Bank have played a key role in BIMA’s amazing story – and the future of the RUN programme which we are partnering and supporting.

We are working to support BIMA:

  • to encourage and nurture female talent and create a gender-friendly environment for women to thrive
  • to instil confidence in women and give them the tools they need to climb up the ladder
  • to engage and educate men and women on their conscious or unconscious gender biases so that they can work better as a team
  • and through supporting these local “ambassadors” in their projects, to deliver local mentoring, coaching, and real-time womens’ health, financial and empowerment projects in their local economies, towns and villages, and through reaching out to other businesses operating in their countries.
