#Womens Empowerment


At the BSR Conference 2017, we will host a private dinner discussion organized by the UN Foundation, the Business Council for the UN, and BSR, to be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday October 25.

At the dinner, we will launch a new guide for business to support health and empowerment of women. The eight actions outlined in the guide both strengthen businesses’ contributions to the Sustainable Development Goals and generate a strong return on investment.

This intimate dinner discussion will bring together senior leaders from companies and organizations who are advancing health, well-being, and empowerment of women. Guests will have the opportunity to share input on the guide and new cutting-edge call-to-action, to learn from one another, and enjoy dinner with like-minded peers. We will share the guide with confirmed guests ahead of the event.
