2017 Women's Empowerment Principles Forum





Around the world, the business community champions women’s and girls’ empowerment. Join us at the Women’s Empowerment Principles Forum on 14 to 15 March 2017 at the United Nations and Grand Hyatt in New York City.

This year’s event, Measuring Success, Making It Count, will explore the role of the private sector in achieving the 2030 agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals. We will look at different ways of measuring outcomes of initiatives to support women and girls and how to use data to drive discourse and action.

This high-level event is a joint convening of UN Women, UN Global Compact, United Nations Office for Partnerships and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation. It builds on past years’ celebrations of International Women’s Day and the annual events of the Women’s Empowerment Principles. We invite you to come together with more than 400 cross-sector leaders and innovators to elevate these important topics!
