UN Women 2021 Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Awards was launched in 2020 as the first regional awards initiative in the Asia Pacific recognizing the private sector action to gender equality. WEP is a set of seven principles guiding businesses to become more gender-inclusive across the value chain. They had received 400 applications last year from 17 different countries in the Asia Pacific.
The award is back this year and has been announced on 21st April 2021. The award categories will be announced at the event. You will also get an opportunity to hear from previous winners and companies about the champion of gender equality. The event will also be celebrating the new WEPs signatories.
It is a virtual event and the registration is now open. You can register yourself here.
