Unleash Opportunity - Gender Equality in Global Supply Chains



Gender Equality in Global Supply Chains

Monday 25 October from 10:00 AM till 11:15 AM CEST

Women are present throughout value chains as producers, business owners, executives, employees, distributors, and consumers. However, they face significant barriers and are underrepresented in leadership roles. This session gives an insight into the new amfori BSCI Code of Conduct and its integrated gender-lens and how it helps businesses to integrate gender equality into their due diligence strategy. In addition, participants will learn from the practical experience of businesses that have started adopting a gender-sensitive due diligence approach. Challenges and opportunities will be discussed with the participants.
