Women's Economic Empowerment & Gender Equality at the World Economic Forum 

This week, world leaders working across government, the private sector, and civil society are meeting for the 2019 World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. Investment in gender equality must be an integral part of the WEF agenda on Globalization 4.0

Why? Because the data tells a clear and compelling story:

These numbers demonstrate the case for investing in solutions that promote women’s economic empowerment – a pre-requisite for inclusive and equitable economic growth. To tap into this potential and see the #PowerOf women as drivers of economic development, we must get creative – and collaborative – with solutions that draw on the expertise and resources of partners working across sectors.  Everyone has a role to play, and everyone stands to benefit from investments in gender equality.

It's time for world leaders to say yes to gender equality!
