UNITED NATIONS WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT PRINCIPLES
We develop projects to support gender equality and are involved in many voluntary works. We, at Zer, have signed the United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) to strengthen the support we show for women. The United Nations Women's Empowerment Principles platform is one of the most important global initiatives of the private sector, aiming to empower women to take their places in all sectors and all levels of economic life.
WEPs platform, developed and distributed by the United Nations Gender Equality and Women's Empowerment Unit (UN Women) and United Nations Global Compact initiative, offers seven principles for the private sector that should be taken into account for gender equality in workplaces, markets and community-wide. This platform asks the leaders of the business community to make explicit commitments that they will implement these seven principles to establish company policies that will help increase gender equality. The leaders who sign the CEO Support Statement thereby demonstrate their intent to implement these principles in every unit of their company. The principles that companies should consider include simple rules and recommendations that provide guidance on empowerment of women in the workplace, market and community.
We, at Zer, are committed to continue our support for Women's Empowerment Principles in line with the importance and sensitivity we provide to gender equality studies.
