Concept Note, Agenda and panelists BIO :
Women’s economic empowerment in the changing working world is the focus of CSW61.
Relevant economic data show that there is a strong need for innovative entrepreneurs to revamp or invent a new type of economy.
At the same time, economists and academics agree and point out that women entrepreneurs are an under-tapped force that can rekindle economic expansion.
Women are becoming more entrepreneurial. Could this be an added value? Do we have data, experiences etc. to back this up?
What kind of startups do women prefer to initiate? It seems that most startup enterprises are handicraft companies with little or no growth plan, sometime a self-employment solution to overcome lack of work. Indeed, some of the most famous women entrepreneurs became entrepreneurs by inheriting their companies.
Our vision is that women can be great company leaders and that they can modify values driving the change.
Data are offering us another point of view: most university graduate students are women. Are we really exploiting all these potentials? What are the possible causes hindering this process? Access to funds, family conciliation etc.?
Being a woman and a mother can create a different economic point of view.
We would like to analyze the possibility that a special attitude of caring, inclusion, diversity and capability to leverage traditions could be the real added value in starting different kinds of companies.
Local country brands such as “ Made in Italy” could be used by women to become global innovative entrepreneurs. In our debate, we will have the possibility to review data, local experiences and share ideas to capitalize on them.
At the CSW60 we discussed and shared the concept that Women’s inclusion accelerates the reaching of our goal of full sustainable development. We aim at Women’s empowerment and the full realization of human rights for all women and girls. We realize that these steps are crucial for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and for achieving Planet 50-50 by 2030.
