Since 2006, we have been selecting and publishing the annual list of top 10 CSR events for 14 years. China Sustainability Tribune presents you the Top 10 International CSR Events in 2019.

NO.3 The EU and UN Women promote economic empowerment of women in Asia

On March 8, the European Union and UN Women jointly launched a three-year program WeEmpower Asia with a budget of 8 million euros. Funded by the EU and to be implemented by UN Women, the program aims to address gender concerns in business practices in the Asian countries. WeEmpower Asia will promote dialogue among women's groups and the public and private sector, in an effort to build a business environment that empowers women. The program will also provide skills training for female entrepreneurs to engage with businesses, policymakers and decision-makers.

Reason for listing:

Gender equality is one of the Sustainable Development Goals, and it is also an indispensable path to achieve other goals. Achieving gender equality is inseparable from the economic empowerment of women, which is a prerequisite for achieving inclusive and fair economic growth. With the power of business, the prosperity brought by a business environment that empowers women will not only benefit women's development, but will also benefit socio-economic development.
