Whether it's legislation, consumer and investor expectations, or sustainability commitments, many companies are feeling increasing pressure to address human rights risks in supply chains.
Gender equality is at the heart of human rights, and in many supply chains, women are the driving force behind the development of our daily products. Yet women face major challenges and have limited access to opportunities. Curious about what your company can do for gender equality in international trade?
Upcoming EU due diligence legislation, offers an opportunity for Dutch companies to play an important role in promoting gender equality in supply chains worldwide.
On October 31, Win-Win Strategies, SheSupplies, and the Social and Economic Council are organizing an event for Dutch businesses with international value chains. Join us and discover how you can support women in your supply chain and how your company can benefit from gender equality.
The afternoon's program consists of a keynote speech by former Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation Lilianne Ploumen, a panel discussion about practical examples with companies Mars, Wakuli, ASN Bank, and the Social and Economic Council, and case studies about companies Signify and Freddie's Flowers.
