Beyond Commitment to Action: Fulfilling Global Promises on Women’s Economic Empowerment for Sustainable, Inclusive and Equitable Developent

Investing in women’s economic empowerment sets a direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication and inclusive economic growth. When you invest in a woman’s health and empowerment, it has a ripple effect, helping families, communities, and countries achieve long-lasting benefits. But despite the fact that women and girls have a unique power to reshape societies they remain disproportionately affected by poverty, discrimination and exploitation.

The Swedish Parliament´s delegation to the Interparliamentary Union (IPU) in cooperation with the National Committee of UN Women Sweden, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs and SIDA, has the pleasure to invite you to an afternoon seminar with Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Executive Director of UN Women.

The panel discussion will focus on key recommendations and showcase experiences on how to upscale efforts to fulfil global promises on women´s economic empowerment as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

RSVP by 2 March to: ipu@riksdagen.se

The seminar will be conducted in English.
