Women in Business Forum 2019: Empowered Women towards a Stronger Economy

DATE(s):

Aug
VENUE:
Solaire Resort Manila

Membership Meeting & Forum

The World Economic Forum 2018 Global Gender Gap report shows that the Philippines ranks 8th in the world in terms of gender equality. This shows that in comparison with other economies, the country fares better in the areas of women’s economic participation and opportunity, educational attainment, health, and political empowerment. This is brought about by a collective action from businesses and institutions implementing human resource practices, campaigns, and initiatives geared towards providing women employees more flexibility, career mentorship, and development.

Meanwhile, there is still potential for growth for gender parity and maximizing the role of women to achieve inclusive economic growth and sustainable development. This capacity especially lies within the middle-managerial to grassroots levels. The ECCP Women in Business Forum 2019 will provide a platform for thought leaders, business managers, government representatives, women empowerment advocates, and other key stakeholders to exchange views and best practices that can address these challenges and advance women empowerment initiatives in the private sector and the society as a whole.
