CARE and Norfund welcome you to a breakfast seminar on the topic of women and business in developing countries. We’ll explore the questions:

  • Why should businesses invest in gender equality in developing countries?
  • What are the best practices, previous experiences, challenges and methods we have for investing in gender equality?
  • Norfund, CARE, and more: where are there opportunities for collaboration?
  • What can we learn from each other across sectors?

  • Tori Tveit, Director, International Cooperation Programme, NHO
  • Simen Øby, Senior Investment Manager, Norfund
  • Signe Kolbye Sørensen, Senior Economist, Norfund

A light breafast, coffee, and tea will be available starting at 8:00, with the seminar starting at 8:30.

A recording of the event will be posted after but will not be streamed during the event itself.


CARE is a global aid organization that works for women’s rights. By cooperating mainly with women, CARE Norway works for sustainable change for the better. They offer women knowledge and guidance in ways to fend for themselves. When they work with men, CARE promotes men’s ability to support gender equality for a better society.

CARE’s programmes and policy work tackle the underlying causes of poverty so that people can become self-sufficient, providing life-saving assistance when disaster strikes, and helping people rebuild their lives afterwards.


Norfund is the Norwegian Investment Fund for developing countries. Our mission is to create jobs and to improve lives by investing in businesses that drive sustainable development.

Norfund is owned and funded by the Norwegian Government and is the Government’s most important tool for strengthening the private sector in developing countries, and for reducing poverty.
