Women’s Empowerment Principles brochure
The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a set of seven Principles offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace, and community.
Jointly established by UN Women and UN Global Compact, the WEPs are informed by international labour and human rights standards and grounded in the recognition that businesses have a stake in, and responsibility for, gender equality and women’s empowerment. Gender equality is more than just a moral responsibility. It is also great for business.
The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a primary vehicle for corporate delivery on gender equality dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. WEPs signatories, therefore, stand in solidarity with the United Nations to end gender inequality in the workplace, marketplace, and community.
