Gender equality as a tool for sustainable development and competitive advantage

Learn more about how gender equality unleashes a range of positive financial and development outcomes. Gender equality is at the same time an essential part of sustainable development. Learn how to use gender equality as a tool for business development and how it can be used as a key factor for companies to be a competitive business partner and employer.

We will also be talking about gender stereotypes and how they form us, why we need to challenge them, the benefits of doing that for individuals, companies and society. We will get to know some good examples from industries which managed to do that.

Last but not least, networking and fun!
