Kepler, based in Rwanda, has built, revised and revamped a competency-based model of education for emerging markets. Three years and two campuses later, Kepler is creating a model of tertiary education that increases access by improving affordability while maintaining quality. While there are many successes to celebrate at Kepler, the organization strives to improve its outcomes for all students. In this session, Kepler aims to bring together a variety of stakeholders in order to discuss how to engage both men and women in improving educational and work outcomes for young women in the developing world. Through an interactive session focused on a Kepler-based problem in practice, participants will leave with a broader network of colleagues, working together towards solutions.
