From Participation to Power: Journeys through women’s economic empowerment – the game!

This adaptation of ‘snakes and ladders’ illustrates the multiple factors that can create opportunities or pitfalls on the journey towards women’s economic empowerment.

The board game is a tool that was previewed at a side event during the Pacific Community’s (SPC) Triennial Conference of Pacific Women. The side event ‘From participation to power: mapping economic pathways to women’s empowerment’ was convened by the Pacific Women Support Unit in partnership with CARE Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu Skills Partnership.

Two printable versions are available to download below: a basic version; and a full version (which is designed around three “journeys” for players to experience).
