Unlimited Potential: Business Partners for Gender Equality

10 - 11 March 2015,  United Nations Headquarters,  New York City

This year a number of global milestones – the twentieth anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action (PfA), and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – provide a unique opportunity to ensure that the business community is a key partner in achieving gender equality.

Held as part of the official CSW59/Beijing+20 programme, the 2015 Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Annual Event will bring together leaders from business, Government, the UN and civil society to reflect on the implications of the PfA and the SDGs, and project an action agenda driven by WEPs champions. Held on 10-11 March 2015 in New York, the event will also focus on concrete steps and actions that business can take to advance gender equality in the workplace, marketplace and community.
