Dalberg is increasingly striving to adopt a gender lens across all of our project work, across sectors. In celebration of this year’s International Women’s Day, we share three recent project spotlights from across our portfolio of work, where adopting a gender lens has allowed us to drive value for our clients, and deepen the impact of our engagements. The outputs of these projects include: a guide on gender-sensitive service provision to smallholder farmers, a platform to increase employment opportunities for women in the creative industries, and a set of investment criteria that G7 development finance institutions can use to mobilize gender lens investing commitments and define eligible investments.
Dalberg, in collaboration with The Centre for Social Behaviour Change at Ashoka University and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, launched a public data set and tool to enable better design for financial health in India.
It is unique in using a multi-method research approach including human-centered design, cognitive psychology, behavioral science, and large-scale survey-based methods together to understand consumers.
Design principles are guidelines that specify the end user experience for a product. The seven principles in this set are illustrated to help deliver a financial product that meets low-income consumers where they are, and where they want to be.
