Did you know that while 1 in 3 businesses globally are owned by women, they win only 1% of the procurement spend of large corporations? Gender-responsive procurement (GRP) aims to resolve these inequalities by considering the impact on gender equality when making procurement decisions. This practice promotes not only positive social outcomes for women, but also benefits for businesses.
Join the UN Global Compact Academy for an upcoming live session on 14 September at both 9:00am Hong Kong and 9:30am New York to understand the business of gender-responsive procurement, and learn from global experts on why and how businesses can transform their supply chain practices to promote gender equality.
During this session, hosted in collaboration with UN Women, you will learn:
- What gender-responsive procurement is
- The business benefits of gender-responsive procurement
- Strategic examples from companies practicing gender-responsive procurement
