The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a set of Principles offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community. Established by UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are informed by international labour and human rights standards and grounded in the recognition that businesses have a stake in, and a responsibility for, gender equality and women’s empowerment.
WE EMPOWER G7 - a program of UN Women, the EU and ILO, Boston Mayor's Office of Women's Advancement and GEENIE, with presenting sponsor Fidelity Investments will host the Leading on Inclusive Business event. This half day convening will engage the private sector, local government, community organizations, and entrepreneurs to share best practices for creating a more inclusive future. The event will be framed around two themes - data and transparency and partnerships - as a means to secure workplace policies that work for diverse women.
