Unlocking Sustainability Innovation: The Business Case for Empowering Women

Across the globe, women disproportionately feel the acute impacts of climate change, constrained natural resources and inequitable working conditions. They represent half of the world's population and do two-thirds of the world's work, yet earn only one-tenth of the world's income and own less than one percent of the world's property. To solve global sustainability challenges we must access the innovation and business acumen of women. There is growing evidence that when this happens, the potential for change is significant and the pay off is huge. Join us as we explore how leading investors and companies are recognizing the business case for empowering women to overcome social and environmental challenges, unlock innovation and unleash economic potential.
