WE EMPOWER G7 USA
WE EMPOWER USA focuses on three thematic areas to advance women in the future of work - supporting women entrepreneurs, gender-lens investing and inclusive innovation and skills for the future. UN Women is convening communities at the state and local level across the US to support the private sector and policymakers in anticipating and managing opportunities for women’s economic empowerment while considering future workplace trends and research
Through multi-stakeholder dialogues, knowledge products and a growing online community at empowerwomen.org that focuses broadly on “Women in the Future of Work”, WE EMPOWER USA is introducing strategies and advancing discussions pivotal to women’s recruitment, retention and promotion in the US workforce. Convenings in US cities will address employment policies and practices on issues such as paid and family medical leave or childcare, by showcasing local examples in the US and other G7 countries that have been pivotal for working women, facilitate gender equality in the workplace, market place and supply chain, and look to new models of conducting business that prioritize women’s economic impact and professional well-being.
