Private sector involvement

New global challenges, migratory fluxes and social-economical changes require the private sector to elaborate new intervention strategies, capable of generating win-to-win results, by linking economical objectives to social ones.

The promotion of equality, in all its forms, has its effects on workers’ rights and in the territories where these operate and allows to enhance woman’s contribution to the economical development of the community, as is expressed by the 7 Women’s Empowerment Principles of the UN, according to which female empowerment is essential to the private sector, in order to:

  • Strengthen economy.

  • Promote a better social justice.

  • Become adequate to the international standards of sustainable development.

  • Actively promote human rights.

  • Improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities.

Main Activities:

  • Engagement of SMEs & industries, which are interested in orienting their corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies to contrast Gender Based Violence and FGM in partner countries.

  • Foster the creation of “outcome funding proposals” by SMEs and Industries in order to award outstanding and effective projects finalized to FGM prevention.
