Women's Empowerment Principles in Georgia
UN Women, with the support of the Norwegian Ministry for Foreign Affairs, implemented the project “A Joint Action for Women’s Economic Empowerment in Georgia” (JAWE) from 2017 to 2020 to empower women economically and strengthen the private sector’s engagement in women’s economic empowerment activities. The key tool utilized in this work is the WEPs. Overall, the project increased the private sector’s understanding of the gender dimensions of corporate sustainability and strengthened the capacities of 80 companies to implement the WEPs.
The publication combines the stories of success and inspiration of WEPs signatory companies in Georgia that demonstrated exemplary practices of empowering women, brought change to corporate culture, achieved inclusive growth and considered equality as both the right thing to do and good for business.
