The 1st Australian consultation to the UN…

The Women’s Empowerment Principle’s (WEPs) and the first Australian consultation to the UN Secretary General High Level Panel of Women’s Economic Empowerment

On 7 June 2016, the first Australian consultation to the UN Secretary General High Level Panel of Women’s Economic Empowerment brought together leaders from the worlds of business, sport and not-for-profits to gather vital data for a United Nations reportThe consultation was co-chaired by Craig Tiley, CEO Tennis Australia and Jayne Hrdlicka, CEO Jetstar Group, and provided thought leadership and gathered case studies from participants that (as examples) can be replicated and scaled up by business, governments and communities around the world. Tennis Australia used this opportunity to promote the WEPs and called for Australian CEOs to sign and commit to them.

“This was an historic event that brought together captains of industry from business and sport, two very much a male dominated sectors, allowing us to identify and share best practices in overcoming constraints to women’s economic empowerment and advocate investment in tackling the major issues involved” said Founding co-chair of CBW, Freda Miriklis. “There are many similarities that can be explored in other Commonwealth countries and CBW looks forward to driving this momentum with the private sector after the two reports of the High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment are delivered to the United Nations in September 2016 and March 2017.”
