Pink Collars in a Global World

In the U.S.-Saudi Women's Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, we are learning a lot of new terms and concepts, and how to apply them to improving the community. Here are a few more from female social entrepreneur Leila Chirayath Janah to add to your list:

  • Pink Collar jobs refers to employing women in responsible ways
  • Shelancers refers to women sharing their knowledge online, especially in areas with barriers to employment.

Leila uses these terms to refer to employing women in remote areas through technology training and access. How do these concepts transfer to Jeddah's urban environment? Can we apply these to address a community opportunity or need? If so, how? What do you think?
