Making the Invisible Visible: Driving Corporate Commitments on Gender Equality; Women’s Health for the Decade of Action

By United Nations Foundation and World Benchmarking Alliance

Recognizing that substantial gaps remain in achieving SDG 3 on health and well-being for all and SDG 5 on gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights around the world, this interactive multi-stakeholder dialogue will elevate meaningful commitments to women’s health and empowerment as well as transparency related to gender equality and women’s empowerment by the business community. Getting back on track for the SDGs begins with ensuring the invisible are made visible and not left behind in the call for a true ‘Decade of Action’ on the SDGs.

The event will focus on issues essential to addressing women’s economic inclusion that are relevant to companies and their value chains in the global north and south. The objective is to provide evidence-based assessments on corporate gender impacts and how the business community can best respond, especially amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, which is having a disproportionate impact on women and girls and deepening inequalities.
