ABOUT WOMEN'S EMPOWERMENT PRINCIPLES

Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) guide businesses on how to promote gender equality and empower women in workplaces, industry, and society. Created jointly by the UN Global Compact and UN Women, WEPs are underpinned by international labor standards and human rights, as well as the recognition that businesses have an essential role in promoting gender equality and women's empowerment. Adopting the seven principles is the best way for corporations to achieve the goals of gender equality and women's empowerment in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
