Step it up for gender equality: How business and philanthropic leaders can be game changers for women

"Step it up for gender equality: How business and philanthropic leaders can be game changers for women" highlights the best ways for philanthropic and business leaders to drive transformative change through ideas, actions and financial commitments.

This brochure details how business and philanthropic leaders can make a difference in the effort to achieve gender equality and women's empowerment under the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. As the world has signed up to strive together on this new agenda that has gender equality and women’s empowerment at its heart, there is a large financing gap. There is growing recognition, extensively backed by research, of the way in which economies and societies are failing to thrive in the absence of empowered women. This has reached a new universality in the 2030 Agenda. However, that knowledge has not so far translated into targeted investment.
