Advocating for Gender Equality through the use of Intellectual Property in Uganda.
Intellectual Property and Women Economic empowerment in the local Community through GSWIM
By Lilian Nantume
The education and dissemination of knowledge about Intellectual Property Rights for small women-owned businesses in Uganda is still in its infancy. Unfortunately, most women do not know that they can transform the business ideas they have in their heads into protected business products. Others have never realized that they are naturally creative and innovative regarding the kind of products they are producing. This is one of the reasons I founded Grooming a Successful Woman with Intellectual Mind (GSWIM). GSWIM is an organization that aims to empower and inspire women to be successful by using Intellectual Property (IP). GSWIM focuses on encouraging women’s economic empowerment through the transformation of their ideas into business assets for enhanced commercial value and self-sustainability. GSWIM believes in women’s potential for creativity and innovation and that they can participate in the growth of the economy equally to that of men. In this way, GSWIM aims to close the gender gap in the use of IP Rights.
