English term or phrase: empowerment
The term empowerment is a bit of a business buzzword in the US. Is there a Dutch equivalent?

Explanation:
In staat stellen is empower. It does depend on the context though but I would use the above.

beslissingsvermogen of initiatiefsvermogen


Explanation:
Volgens de context, initiatiefsvermogen is algemener, "initatief" op zichzelf kan in een bepaalde zinscontext eveneens aanvaardbaar zijn.

het leren opkomen voor jezelf, het lot in eigen handen nemen


Explanation:
This word is very difficult to translate in one Dutch word. It's even harder to translate it without the context.
To empower means: machtigen, mondiger maken so I think the meaning of empowerment is: leren opkomen voor jezelf, het lot in eigen handen nemen,...
