Spotlight on our Youth: NextGen of Researchers - Brief

Spotlight on our Youth: the next generation of researchers

Five CARICOM-based young researchers Kenya Eversley, Cedrina Carr, Lisa Hussain, Shernia Joseph, and Kevelle Cooper, from Barbados, Grenada, Guyana, Saint Lucia, and Trinidad & Tobago respectively, completed a two-year research internship with the UN Women Multi-Country Office (MCO) - Caribbean, as research assistants to a multi-country study on the Economic Costs of Violence against Women and Girls (ECOVAWG).  UN Women MCO in its role as the lead agency for Data and Research under the EU-UN Spotlight Initiative Programme facilitated the opportunity for the young Caribbean women to develop and strengthen their skills in data collection and analysis but more importantly, to contribute to an initiative which empowers young women and girls, works towards achieving gender equality, and addresses VAWG in Caribbean societies.
