The Role of Women in the Development of the Creative Industries: A Global Mission in a New Reality
15 October 2021
The UN declared 2021 to be the International Year of the Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. The creative economy is one of the most dynamic and fast-growing sectors in the world today. The creative industries are already worth more than USD 2 trillion, and continue to grow at a rapid pace.

The sector possesses substantial potential for greater female participation. The EAWF Council has implemented a range of projects to offer women as many opportunities as possible in the creative industries. These include «Women for Sustainable Industrial Development», a project run by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation in cooperation with UNIDO.

What branches of the creative industries offer most potential for women? What can be done to provide a greater outlet for women’s creative potential? What reforms need to be made to the personnel training system for the creative economy? What management and technological skills should a woman possess in order to be successful in the creative economy?
