2018 Women’s Empowerment Principles Forum

March 15, 2018 - February 15, 2018
New York

mpowering women to participate fully in economic life is essential to build stronger economies and improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities. The private sector has a central and active role to play in achieving gender equality and women’s empowerment under the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Development is about how we all choose to do business and how we reflect principles of equality on an everyday level, so they permeate our cultures, values, performance and business practices.

Companies drive gains in productivity, competitiveness and innovation by developing policies and practices to improve gender equality at the workplace, and developing gender responsive procurement and source from women-owned businesses.

We cannot reach the goals of the 2030 Agenda unless women and girls are on an equal footing with men and boys and unless we have the private sector on board.

In the spirit of advancing the crucial role of the private sector to achieve Goal 5, UN Women and UNGC join to organize the Annual Women’s Empowerment Principles Event. The event will take place in New York in March 2018 and will provide a platform for presenting ongoing, successful business initiatives that aim at women’s empowerment, economic inclusion and entrepreneurship globally.
