International Women's Day Panel Discussion

The theme for the 2016 International Women's Day is "Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step it up for gender equality". In line with this theme and UNIDO's mission, the panel discussion will feature female sustainable development experts and businesswomen discussing their approaches to creating and leading sustainable enterprises.

Considering the leading role of women entrepreneurs in managing environmentally sustainable businesses, the discussion will focus on how we can best apply their example to effectively implement the 2030 Agenda, and how to provide businesswomen with the assets, resources and incentives they need to further support gender equality and sustainability across the industrial sector.

The target audience will be representatives from Permanent Missions, the Women Ambassadors in Wien network, and staff of UNIDO and other Vienna-based organizations.

The event will be followed by a cocktail reception.
