Gender parity presents a significant economic opportunity for the entire world. With the new world order and UN Sustainable Development Goals in place, the time is now to harness the collective action of the public and private sector to fully realize this potential. During this half-day program, we’ll hear how the business community is applying a gender lens to their local and global development work and share best practices on how to help driving global empowerment forward across sectors and industries.

Conversations will focus on issues such as:

• Education and Skills Gap

• The Sustainable Development

• Inclusive Workforce

• Financial Inclusion

• Empowering Women in the Supply Chain and as Entrepreneurs

• Maternity and Child Health

• Women's Role in the Communities for Peace and Security

• Racial Inequality

• Discrimination based on sexual orientation


This inspirational networking event is to honour Women!


Complimentary and open to the public.
