Empowerment of women in the Digital Age through Entrepreneurship and Partnerships
Women represent half the population of the world but their share in the economy is very low. Inclusive development and gender equality are musts for sustainable development. Both in the public and private sectors, there is a need for more women to be among the suppliers in the procurement, and women remain strongly underrepresented in trade. Support of private sector and public authorities will be a big step forward to enable women's access to economy and markets. At the parallel event, good examples of partnership of private sector, NGO, municipalities and international organizations will be shared to inspire participants. These models can be easily applied in other countries. Both public procurement and gender friendly local environment are means of support of Municipalities.
