Equality Means Business – Introduction to Women´s Empowerment Principles

Start you journey today and join the Women´s Empowerment Principles

The struggle for gender equality is essential to secure a sustainable, inclusive, and prosperous economy that benefits all. The private sector has the power to generate innovation, employment and financing that can bridge the gender gaps in the business sector. Global research has proven that companies investing in women, supporting women’s leadership, and committing to gender equality more often than not outperform their competitors. Equal treatment of women and men is not just the right thing to do – it is also good for business now and in the future. Hence, a broad concept of sustainability and corporate responsibility that embraces women’s empowerment will benefit us all. In order to help your business and the global business community realize these opportunities, the seven steps of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) were established by the UN Global Compact and UN Women.

Sign up to our introductory webinar, learn more about the WEPs and begin your journey to productivity, profitability and sustainability by empowering women employees, suppliers, customers, investors and beyond.
