New Oxford Report Reveals Lessons of Gender Equality Learned by Nine Multinational Companies

Women’s economic empowerment programmes collectively reach 18.5 million women in 132 countries LONDON, ENGLAND, December 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — A new report authored by Emeritus Professor Linda Scott of the University of Oxford’s Said Business School, reveals the global efforts of nine major multinational companies to better include women in the global economy and issues a call for more private sector participation. The report “Private sector engagement with women’s economic empowerment: Lessons learned from years of practice,” https://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/faculty-research/research-projects/global-business-coalition-womens-economic-empowerment, draws on evidence from key global institutions showing that women have largely been excluded from full economic participation in every country in the world, but that global prosperity would substantially increase by including them. “Economic inclusion of women is one of the critical challenges of our time, but it simply cannot be achieved without the engagement of the private sector,” said Linda Scott, Emeritus DP World Chair for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Oxford Said. “If more companies come together, working with governments and non-governmental organisations, worldwide change for women’s economic empowerment could be within reach.” The companies also announced the formation of the Global Business Coalition for Women’s Economic Empowerment (GBC4WEE) under which they have shared key learnings from 57 years of collective experience. Members of the GBC4WEE include The Coca-Cola Company, ExxonMobil, Goldman Sachs, Marks & Spencer, Mondelez International, Mastercard, PwC, Qualcomm Incorporated and Walmart. “Combined experience and shared thinking...
