Partnering to accelerate women’s economic inclusion, empowerment and health

The private sector is crucial to strengthen women’s health and gender equality and advance sustainable social and economic development. This session will shed light on the business case for investing in women’s health and gender equality in the workplace - for the benefit of women, businesses and society. We are joined by exciting players from the private sector and civil society organisations who will share their experiences and existing opportunities to secure women’s economic empowerment and health, including their sexual and reproductive health and rights, in the workplace. Join us and learn more about current best practice to strengthen female labour force participation, gender equality and health in the world of work. This session is organised by the Danish Family Planning Association, Confederation of Danish Industry, Danish Investment Fund for Developing Countries and Federation of Uganda Employers.
