Unleash Opportunity: Gender Equality in Global Supply Chains - Recording Available

29-10-2021

 

The seventh session of the Unleash Opportunity series focused on Gender Equality in Global Supply Chains and took place on 25 October 2021.

Participants gained 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.

Katja Freiwald, Regional Head for 'WeEmpowerAsia' at UN Women Empowering shared some learnings from the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Activator Pilot and presented a deep-dive programme for amfori members on improving their performance on gender-responsive procurement.  

In addition, participants learned from the practical experiences of businesses, such as ALDI Nord, Hunkemöller International BV and Hop Lun, that have started adopting a gender-sensitive due diligence approach. Challenges and opportunities were discussed with the participants.
