Women's Empowerment Principles - Information Session
The purpose of the information session is to introduce the principles of women's empowerment to the business sector. Seven Principles for Women Empowerment teaches businesses how to empower women in the workplace, the marketplace, and in society. The principles were established on International Women's Day in 2010 and were created jointly by UN Women and the United Nations Global Compact. Based on the principles, it is possible to analyze the current initiatives, plans and reporting methods of the company in the "gender context" and help them include the issue of gender equality in their activities.
The information session is part of the UN Women project "A Joint Action for Women's Economic Empowerment in Georgia". The project is funded by Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aims to facilitate the active involvement of Georgia's private sector in the economic empowerment of women. Georgian Chamber of Commerce and Industry joined the project in October 2019.
