CAMPAIGN: BSR and Women's Empowerment

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

Each year on March 8, companies, governments, institutions, and civil society come together to celebrate International Women’s Day and reaffirm commitments to advancing women’s empowerment. And while we’ve made significant progress in women’s economic empowerment, gaps still remain—for example, the CEOs of 21 of the largest global companies are women, but women still represent less than 5 percent of CEOs at S&P 500 companies.

BSR has a growing portfolio of work on women’s empowerment, from collaborative initiatives like HERproject and the newly launched Investing in Women to our recent report on how companies can build effective women’s economic empowerment strategies. We are also a signatory to the Women’s Economic Principles (WEPs) and are proud to be the lead implementation partner in developing a WEPs gap analysis tool that will assist companies with implementation of the principles.
