Our vision to achieve gender equality 

Women’s empowerment is a complex socioeconomic phenomenon that stands as an essential pre-requisite in the path towards gender equality. It is now clear that achieving this goal requires a transversal approach. In this scenario, cultural aspects, which are traditionally more difficult to manage, are a key dimension to ensure the success of short-to-medium and long-term initiatives.

But women’s empowerment cannot be reduced to a matter of rights. Instead, it also needs to be recognized as a paramount economic opportunity for all countries. To guarantee a widespread post-pandemic recovery, countries are being called upon to fully exploit women’s talents in view of a sustainable, inclusive, and competitive development.
