BSR and Women's Empowerment

Women’s empowerment is a major opportunity for business growth, a critical pillar of global sustainability, and an imperative to building an inclusive economy. BSR focuses on women’s empowerment issues by working with companies to develop strategies, engage stakeholders, identify gaps, and recommend actions to help them reach more female customers, recruit and retain women employees, integrate women-owned businesses into supply chains, and realize business benefits. You can learn more about our work at http://www.bsr.org/en/topics/all-channels/Women.
