Consultations of the Secretary-General's High-Level Panel on Women's Economic Empowerment - CSW60 Side Event
16 Mar 2016 -  Investing in women’s economic empowerment is intrinsic to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. It sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth. Yet despite important progress, large gender gaps in economic opportunities and outcomes remain across all countries and regions. In the context of the 2030 Agenda, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced the first-ever High Level Panel for Women’s Economic Empowerment. The Panel will make action-oriented recommendations on how to improve economic outcomes for women in the context of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development, promote women’s leadership in driving economic growth, and galvanize political will.
