Employers’ Organizations and Companies

Win-Win works with the private sector, organizations and business entities to engage companies (public and private) for the economic empowerment of women.
The Programme works in collaboration with companies and business networks, including organizations of employers who are constituent members of the ILO, of member countries of the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean.

The programme uses WEPs (Women Empowerment Principles) as its guiding platform. WEPs are a set of principles offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.

WEPs Awards

The WEPs Award aims to encourage, recognize and value the efforts of companies that promote gender equality in business and implement actions towards the empowerment of women, in accordance with and guided by the WEPs. WEPs are an initiative of the UN Global Compact and UN Women. By adhering to the WEPs, companies make a public commitment to gender equity in their work environment, value chain and the communities they work in. WEP companies have access to a series of methodologies to design and measure their actions and become part of a global network for the exchange of experiences and best practices on gender equality in business. On an approximated annual basis, companies have their efforts towards gender equality celebrated at WEPs Award events.









Sharing knowledge

In addition to offering free trainings and mentoring on a variety of topics, Win-Win also organises a series of meetings aimed at promoting the exchange of experiences between companies, businesswomen and women entrepreneurs, boosting business networks for businesswomen in Latin America and the Caribbean to access new markets in the European Union.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the agenda of events was strengthened – and many of them (carried out online) focused on the challenges that women face and also the role they can play in the recovery of the economy and business.
