WEPs Annual Event

Unlimited Potential: Business Partners for Gender Equality

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

Next year, a number of global milestones – the twentieth anniversary of the Beijing Platform for Action (PfA), the Post-2015 Development Agenda and anticipated Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – provide a unique opportunity to ensure that the business community commits, contributes and is a key partner to achieving gender equality.

The 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 re-visioned SDGs, and project an action agenda driven by the WEPs business champions and constituency. 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.
