Gender equality is seen as both a fundamental human right and an essential foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. It is number 5 on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be met by 2030.
We joined the first FEMINISM Defined: Brining ALL to the conversation of Gender Equality conference hosted by Emma Burdett from WILD – Women in Leadership Deliver in partnership with Arabian Business .
Our MENA Managing Director Kerem Cengiz took part in a panel discussion and talked about Challenges and Opportunities, Best Practice, Inclusive Teams, Male Allies and how businesses, governments and education, needs to support each arm of society to further the cause.
Moderated by Scott Armstrong the panel included powerful voices from Christopher Seymour, Minister Zialor – Seychelles Ministry of Youth, Sports and Family, Sarah Aoun Balesh who all confirmed that women need a framework for parity.
It is the time to scale actions and walk the talk towards achieving these gender commitments across our practices & communities.
