Partnering with UN Women: Businesses and Philanthropies
UN Women seek high-impact partnerships with industry leaders and philanthropies for their knowledge, expertise, and positioning to strengthen operations, amplify advocacy and find innovative solutions to achieve SDG5. Together, UN Women and the private sector partners can drive meaningful and long-lasting impacts.
There are many benefits from partnering with UN Women. To recognize valuable work and generous contributions, UN Women provides communications and public relations support for maximum visibility of the partnerships. In addition to global recognition and visibility, partners have the opportunity to build corporate networks and relationships with like-minded businesses, philanthropic leaders, and client bases in UN Women-led initiatives such as the Generation Equality Forum, HeForShe, the Unstereotype Alliance, and the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). Our private sector partners may also experience positive effects on their overall businesses through collaborating with UN Women, for example, higher sales, stronger customer and supplier relationships, and a boost to employee morale and loyalty.
Partnerships with UN Women can take various forms: shared value and programme innovation, cause-related marketing, customer fundraising, employee giving, pro-bono services, access to advertising spaces and communications channels, mentorship and training, flexible funding, and specific funding for countries or programmes.
