Private Sector Wisdom to Crack Gender Equality - CSW63 Side Event
13 Mar 2019 -  Governments frequently create policies in order to achieve gender equality – which can be effective, but are limited to certain areas in the public domain. When it comes to the private sector and to elected positions, official policies sometimes need to make way for a different approach, in which women make their way towards achieving equality and taking their place around the table independently. However, women often lack many of the advantages that men have in an environment that is still far from equal.
In this side event we will present different models and ways to overcome those challenges, as developed and promoted by women-led NGOs and women entrepreneurs.
