Diverse, Resilient and Viable – Stabilising Economies and Societies Through Women’s Empowerment

 

WOMEN20 GERMANY 2017

Diverse, Resilient and Viable –
Stabilising Economies and Societies Through Women’s Empowerment

Women20 (W20) is an official G20 engagement group forming a transnational network of women’s organizations, female entrepreneurs associations and think tanks.  The main goal of Women20 is to promote women’s economic empowerment as an integral part of the G20 process. In a broad dialogue facilitated by digital tools, expert meetings, roundtables and the final W20 Summit, W20 jointly formulates concrete recommendations to advance gender equality in G20 negotiations.

Diversity and full participation are essential for fostering resilient, sustainable and viable economies and societies, whereas homogeneous systems bear risks and uncertainties.  Women’s economic empowerment is thus fundamental for a prosperous world and essential for economic growth, stable economies and social development.

In 2017, W20 will focus on the following four pillars:

Labour Market Inclusion
Increasing the labour market participation rate and the value of work traditionally done by women

Financial Inclusion
Promoting female entrepreneurship and access to finance for women

Digital Inclusion
Closing the digital gender divide

Strengthening the W20
Gender Equality and Women’s Economic Empowerment at the core of G20
