International Women’s Day Forum 2014
On March 4, 2014 the U.S. Chamber Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center, Business Call to Action, and United Nations Office for Partnerships will celebrate International Women’s Day at the United Nations. This annual forum brings together leaders committed to the economic empowerment of women.
The data points have been given, the business case is there – now how do we collectively empower women and girls around the world? A vision, a commitment to action, and a will to build partnerships are all vital to reaching our desired results. In 2014, our annual International Women’s Day forum will expand upon 2013 and explore the catalytic role women play in the global economy. We will apply our inspiration and knowledge, discuss best practices, and examine actionable initiatives. The event will dive deep into the many challenges that women and girls still face in attaining economic independence with a strong focus on the solutions. The forum will also highlight the private sector’s role in these efforts and how companies and their partners are working to build a supportive ecosystem for women and girls all over the world.
