Empowering womenpreneur in emerging markets, particularly in a diverse and dynamic economy like Indonesia, holds profound significance, catalyzing economic growth by unlocking the full potential of the workforce.
When women are provided with opportunities to start and lead businesses, it expands the labor market, contributing to increased productivity and overall economic development.
This is also what triggered PT. Indosat Tbk (Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison), as one of the leading Telecommunication companies in Indonesia, collaborates with KUMPUL , empowering women entrepreneurship across Indonesia through a series of SheHacks programs.
Furthermore, advocating for women’s entrepreneurship nurtures diversity and innovation, leading to a more robust and creative business landscape. Womenpreneurs bring unique insights and ideas to the table, addressing a broader range of consumer needs and preferences. This diversity not only enriches the market but also encourages an environment of innovation, driving businesses to stay competitive and adaptable.
This is also aligned with the program, SheHacks that enforces diversity and promotes innovation. Empowering women in emerging markets contributes to social progress as well. Womenpreneurs often invest in their communities, creating jobs and supporting local economies. As these businesses thrive, they become the catalysts for positive social change, challenging traditional gender roles and inspiring the next generation of women to pursue entrepreneurial endeavors.
This is also one of the driving forces behind the initiatives led by Steve Saerang, Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications of Indosat Ooredoo Hutchison putting his objective on to empower women, especially in SheHacks.
On top of that, women’s empowerment in business helps build a more inclusive and equitable society. By breaking down barriers and providing equal opportunities, it narrows the gender gap, fostering a sense of fairness and justice.
This, in turn, contributes to social stability and harmony, creating a conducive environment for sustainable development, aligns with the value that KUMPUL.ID also holds dear, offering womenpreneur the chance to embrace and embody this principle in both their personal values and their businesses.
Lastly, the empowerment of womenpreneurs aligns with global development goals. As women take on leadership roles in business, they become key players in achieving economic sustainability. This not only benefits the individual women entrepreneurs but also contributes to the overall progress of the nation, making strides towards a more balanced and prosperous future.
