KARACHI (UN): Women’s rights are human rights. They are not negotiable. Women & girls everywhere deserve a life of dignity & respect. UN Women works to promote gender quality & women’s empowerment around the world.
The latest available Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5 data shows that the world is not on track to achieve gender equality by 2030. It will take another 286 years to close the global gender gap. Almost 1 in 3 women have experienced physical or sexual violence at least once in their lifetime. Eighty-five per cent of Fortune 500 CEOs are men.
Shining a spotlight on these issues, UN Women will be at Davos, where the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum is taking place from 16 to 20 January 2023. During this week and under the umbrella of Generation Equality, the world’s leading initiative to accelerate investment and implementation on gender equality, UN Women will spearhead solutions-focused conversations with leaders from across governments, business and civil society organizations.
With the support of UN Women’s HeForShe Champions HCL and DP World and through a series of panel discussions, fireside chats, daily video check-ins and social media highlights, UN Women will be centering gender equality and asking every corporation to join global efforts to achieve gender equality by making new or expanding their existing commitments.
