W20, APEC, and BRICS Women Partner to Build a Socially Oriented Economy
5 September 2022
16:00—17:30
In July of 2022, Women 20 (W20) Summit was conveyed under the presidency of Indonesia. Delegates elaborated recommendations on the advancement of the status of women which will be handed over to the G20 leaders. The recommendations encompassed steps on facilitating women’s economic integration, action in the fields of education and healthcare as well as measures to support women-led MSMEs and rural women. Priority issues on the agenda of other international associations, such as APEC and BRICS, coincide with the W20 agenda in many areas. Recognizing the potential of women’s contribution to the economy, these institutions are working on measures to restore economic ties between the participating countries, measures to engage women in labor markets and establish an inclusive environment to create opportunities for unleashing the leadership potential of women. How is it possible to consolidate the efforts of the W20, BRICS and the International Club of Winners and Participants of APEC’s International Competition for Women’s Projects (APEC BEST AWARD) to promote initiatives on women empowerment globally, including within the framework of the Eurasian Women’s Forum? What solutions are necessary to unite the actions of international institutions, governments, business and civil society?
