Topics

#Supply Chain, #Womens Empowerment


With approximately 190 million women employed in global supply chain-related jobs, the private sector is best placed to address ongoing unmet needs for women across supply chains—from modern contraception to equitable career opportunities—by leveraging its influence and reach.

During Global Goals Week, join BSR’s women’s empowerment team for this morning discussion on opportunities for companies to advance women in their supply chains and learn about our latest efforts and tools to support integration of gender equality throughout a company’s supply chain. We’ll discuss questions such as:

  • How can I better identify gendered issues in my supply chain?
  • How and by which means can I engage my suppliers to act on gender equality?
  • Where should my company start when looking to integrate gender considerations within existing tools and processes?

Through practical case studies and expert discussions, participants will learn how businesses can embed a gender-lens into their strategies, policies, due diligence processes, and supplier relationships.
