Description

Women’s economic empowerment is a key condition to achieving sustainable development. Despite efforts to change perspectives such as the SDGs, women continue to be underrepresented in all economic areas. They are underprivileged when it comes to owning land or controlling production assets. In many developing countries in particular, women have little or no access to the labor market. How do we change this situation? Join this session alongside several top female decision-makers to discuss how to strengthen the role of women in the global economy.
