Egypt's National Council for Women, in cooperation with the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), has awarded the gender seal in the public sector to the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency (MSMEDA) in recognition of its efforts to promote gender equality.

CEO of the MSMEDA Nevine Gamea and President of the NCW Maya Morsy both said that the award represents international recognition of Egyptian efforts to further gender equality.

MSMEDA is the first entity in Egypt and the Arab region to receive this seal.

Gender equality assessment is a tool that contributes in determining the criteria used by public institutions to integrate gender equality issues.

The evaluation team is composed of experts on gender equality from the UNDP and the National Council for Women.

MSMEDA is a government entity responsible for Micro, Small and Medium projects in Egypt, offering funds for SMEs either directly or through banks as mediators.
