Working with the private sector to empower women: how to build the business case for change

The private sector is an essential partner in the process of women’s economic empowerment. By adopting business practices that include and support women as workers, consumers, producers and suppliers, firms can not only make an important contribution to the process of women’s economic empowerment, but also expand their market, achieve greater business efficiency, and improve their bottom line. A business case can help firms understand why women’s inclusion and empowerment is important for their mission and values, business model and stakeholders.
Speakers from the Arab Women’s Enterprise Fund (AWEF) and Business for Social Responsibility (BSR) will present diverse approaches, tools, data and metrics that can be used to build a compelling business case to the private sector.
