#Womens Empowerment


Join BSR and the UN Global Compact as we mark the 10th anniversary of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs), a set of Principles based on international standards to guide business action to create more gender-equal workplaces. During the webinar, we will explore how companies are implementing the WEPs and present findings from the WEPs Gender Gap Analysis Tool, an online platform that has been used by more than 2,000 companies to assess their gender equality performance.

While we navigate the challenge of coronavirus, BSR welcomes and encourages more dialogue with our members and more collaboration amongst our network so we can continue to advance the sustainability agenda.

This webinar is part of a year-long series leading up to our flagship event, BSR20: The Decisive Decade, this October in New York. We will of course be monitoring the situation and re-evaluating the feasibility of hosting an in-person conference as the pandemic situation evolves. Check bsr20.org for more updates and the latest agenda information.
