#Womens Empowerment


At the current rate of change, it will take more than 100 years to achieve gender equality in executive ranks. With clear evidence pointing to the social, moral, and business case for promoting gender equality, what is needed to accelerate the pace of change and for companies to take intentional, ambitious action?

Join us for a networking breakfast and discussion on the opportunities for companies to make strides on the advancement of women. Learn about BSR’s latest efforts to support gender equality throughout a company’s operations, from workplace matters to factory-level efforts. We will highlight the newly released Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Gender Gap Analysis Tool, which helps the global business community identify gaps in its performance on gender equality and enables companies to make informed decisions on setting goals and strategies.
