Breakout Sessions

Designing an Effective Women’s Empowerment Strategy

October 25, 2017, 11:30 am-12:30 pm

Women’s empowerment is widely recognized as a critical pillar of sustainable global development, and evidence is mounting that investing in women can also improve business performance. In this session, we will outline how companies can credibly commit to the gender equality agenda, assess their current performance against the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), and build a robust women’s empowerment strategy. Participants will leave this session knowing how to identify how their company can leverage its full value chain, peers, and strategic partners to make the greatest contribution to women’s progress.
