Join the ‘WEPs Activator 2.0' and play an active role in closing the gender gap!



Following the success of the first edition of the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Activator Pilot, amfori and UN Women are partnering up again to hold the ‘WEPs Activator 2.0’. This year again, members and a select group of their business partners are invited to join the 9-month capacity-building programme for an opportunity to learn and exchange knowledge and insight on gender-responsive policies and practices.

Building on last year’s positive outcomes, the “WEPs Activator 2.0” will be an even more tailored experience providing participants with trainings, individual mentoring sessions, peer-to-peer exchanges, and dialogues with stakeholders. Participants from the first edition will share their insights and showcase the policies they have already implemented.
