Young Women and the Future World of Work in Ghana & Senegal

Young women in Ghana and Senegal face significant barriers in the world of work due to social prejudices, a lack of access to the right education and resources, limited opportunities for career advancement, unfavorable workplace conditions, and ineffective government policies.

This five-part series takes a closer look at young women’s employment challenges in Ghana and Senegal and proposes corrective actions to minimize inequalities and strengthen young women’s skills for tomorrow’s work environment. The series is based on two case studies of young women’s employment challenges in Ghana and Senegal conducted by ACET in 2020, where researchers collected life stories from the childhood, education history, and career paths of young women to identify turning points in their interaction with the world of work.
