Australian Research Council (ARC Discovery Projects)

Start year: 2022

Summary: This project aims to investigate how the field of gender-lens investing can be harnessed to address gender inequality and generate social impact. It will generate novel scholarly knowledge that addresses how social innovations like GLI can emerge, grow and be sustained. The expected outcomes include improved theoretical understanding of the organisational and institutional infrastructure required to sustain social innovations by identifying obstacles and best-practice approaches for growth, organisation and governance. This should provide significant benefits in terms of national and international policies and systems supporting impact investing and addressing Sustainable Development Goals.
