#Womens Empowerment


BSR will host a webinar to learn more about how to get involved in the new Business Action for Women initiative. This initiative is designed to raise the ambition and effectiveness of corporate action to advance women’s empowerment. Through this collaboration, companies will work together across sectors, and with key stakeholders, on a shared action agenda to prioritize, scale, and co-invest in solutions for women’s empowerment.

During the webinar, we will introduce the three areas for action that will define the group’s agenda over the next three years: advancing women in supply chains, building resilience on raw materials, and eliminating gender-based violence. You will also hear from our partner Win-Win Strategies about their experience working with grassroots initiatives on these issues and why a cross-sector platform is needed to drive progress forward.
