Join BSR on March 2, 2021, 9:00-10:15 a.m. ET/ 3:00-4:15 p.m. CET to learn about the Generation Equality Forum and how business can contribute to the success of this landmark moment.

As we explored in a recent blog, Generation Equality Forum is a once-in-a-generation opportunity bringing together youth, feminist activists, business, civil society, and government to unite on a path forward to gender equality. Through a series of virtual and in-person convenings culminating in June 2021, the Forum will establish an agenda for scaled-up and urgent action for gender equality across six Action Coalitions.

BSR, The B Team, and Women Win/Win-Win Strategies are working together to support companies to engage with the Forum and make meaningful commitments to promote gender equality. The webinar will be an opportunity to learn about the Forum and Action Coalitions and how private sector actors can contribute to their success. We will hear from the Kering Foundation, private sector lead of the Gender-based Violence Action Coalition, and PayPal, private sector lead of the Economic Justice and Rights Action Coalition, on why they have chosen to join this ambitious movement. There will also be time during the webinar for questions from participants.

Please register here to attend the webinar. For questions, please contact Annelise Thim.
