Date: Thursday, September 11, 2014

Nairobi — UN Women has launched an online business platform for entrepreneurs and business enterprises to exchange strategies and initiatives in support of women’s economic empowerment. The new hub is part of the organization’s commitment to connect and encourage a global network of gender-responsive businesses and to support women-led enterprises.

Through the business hub, entrepreneurs and companies will be able to showcase how they are making gender equality part of their core business and organizational objectives, as well as promote their products and services.

“The private sector is a key player in efforts to build an inclusive economy and companies that work better for women. Through the business hub, the business community will be able to share success stories, engage in dialogue, and take empowering solutions to a global scale,” said UN Women Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka.

The new hub will be hosted on UN Women’s Knowledge Gateway for Women’s Economic Empowerment.
