- The 19th Sino-European CSR Roundtable Forum -
7 December 2018, Shanghai
As a professional and practical communication platform and channel for corporate social responsibility (CSR), the Sino-European CSR Roundtable Forum has been successfully held 18  times in the past years. It has been well received by stakeholders and conducted with great support from participants, including relevant Chinese government departments, CSR organizations as well as Chinese and European enterprises.
From gender equality to empowering women, women’s development has always been a global proposition. International and national laws and regulation, as well as CSR standards/rules developed by international organizations, countries and the local include the protection of women’s rights. SDG 5 also advocates to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls around the world. It is imperative that the private sector make it a top priority and part of their overall corporate strategy to drive lasting change for women’s rights and equality, and articulate these efforts as their contribution to the SDGs.
Women, an essential part of global supply chains, yet face restricted work opportunities and still are exposed to risks lurking in global supply chains where women are most often remain vulnerable to human rights violations, violence and abuse, although supply chains give them access to the formal economy, social security and income. How to   align with the international standards and root in the local to clear the barriers and make them achieve their full potential at work, create a gender-inclusive working environment and advance their rights, health and wellbeing, the 19th Sino-European CSR Roundtable Forum will focus on the topic of empowering women in global supply chains to promote gender equality. Distinguished guests from governments, associations, research institutions, international organizations, well-known companies and sustainability experts will be invited to share their perspective and approaches to develop effective approaches to women’s empowerment, guide business to embed a gender lens in corporate operation and pursue sustainable supply chain development.
