Empretec Women In Business Awards 2018
Thursday 25th October 2018, 18.00 – 20.00 CEST, General Assembly, UN, Palais des Nations
The Empretec Women In Business Awards take place on Thursday 25th October, 6-8pm, during the World Investment Forum (WIF) at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.
These awards, hosted in the General Assembly, are celebrating the crucial role that women entrepreneurs play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in their communities.
Here are 3 easy ways to get involved using Sustainable Development Goals which all play a significant role in women’s empowerment globally:
Ideas To Change The World Posters: Get your children and youth to draw and describe their innovative solutions to achieve either of these Sustainable Development Goals #4 – Education and #13 – Climate Action. We’ll provide an Ideas Canvas template and instructions to generate the incredible ideas, using Flow In Action’s learn to move mountains® approach. The posters will be used to create a display inside and outside of the General Assembly at the UN, Palais des Nations.
1-minute Films: Get your children and youth to create a 1-min film of their creative interpretation of women’s empowerment through entrepreneurship using spoken word poetry. The films will be shown during the event itself and used as a call to action to policymakers and changemakers following the event.
3-min in-person: There are 2 places for a 3-minute in-person performance by individuals or a group on stage in the General Assembly through singing, dancing, musical performance, drama.
The event is organised by UNCTAD (United Nations Conference on Trade & Development) together with UN Women and the Commonwealth Business Women Forum.
The Empretec Women in Business Award are granted to women-owned businesses that have benefited from the business development services of the Empretec programme – a pioneering UNCTAD programme for the promotion of entrepreneurship that operates in 40 developing countries.
