One of the inclusive aspects of 2SCALE is the involvement of women and youth at all levels of partnership activities. For the implementation of activities, partnership facilitators work in close collaboration with business champions and other actors across the value chain. But a large part of the field activities is carried out by the program's business support services (BSS). This technical implementing partner plays a crucial role within the cluster. This is why, in selecting the BSS, 2SCALE encourages a high proportion of female coaches among their staff.
