Event description

In celebration of International Women’s Day on 8 March 2020, stock exchanges around the world will host a bell ringing ceremony to raise awareness of the pivotal role the private sector can play in advancing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5 on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

In New York, the Ring the Bell for Gender Equality event is co-organized by Nasdaq and UN Women’s WE EMPOWER G7 Programme team, in partnership with the European Union and ILO.

As a Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) signatory, Nasdaq is active in its efforts to enhance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the WEPs. To celebrate, Nasdaq and UN Women invite partners to share lessons learned and good practices in implementing the WEPs in the marketplace, workplace, and community.

The event will bring together organizations aspiring to advance SDG5 on gender equality and women’s empowerment. The private sector is well placed to do so by creating a culture of inclusion and diversity and appointing women to senior management positions and to the boards of directors. WEPs case studies show that companies are increasingly developing and tracking progress of gender-sensitive policies.
