Promoting Women's Economic Empowerment


UN Women in Thailand works through the UN Women-Global Compact Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) to build women’s leadership and opportunities in the private sector. Two lead companies in Thailand have signed the WEPs, namely THAI Airways International and Central Retail Corporation. UN Women promotes women’s access to social protection, productive resources and business development skills, particularly those in the informal sector and women migrant workers.  UN Women also promotes mainstreaming gender into social protection and economic development policies.
