Everphone adopts United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles
Everphone has adopted the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.
Everphone CEO Jan Dzulko signed the Principles on July 10th, 2023 in Berlin.
“As the CEO, I am thrilled that our organization has joined the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles. This commitment reflects our dedication to gender equality and empowering women. By implementing these principles, we aim to create a more inclusive work environment and contribute to a more balanced and equitable business world.”Jan Dzulko
Jan was congratulated by UN Global Compact Executive Director, Lise Kingo.
“Women represent half of the world’s population, yet remain under-represented in the global workforce. Not only an affront to human rights and equality, barriers to women’s empowerment also hurt economic growth. That’s why we are calling on business leaders everywhere to implement the Women’s Empowerment Principles and I want to thank you for joining the ever-growing community of WEPs signatories. We need ALL companies to get onboard, because gender equality is more than a moral responsibility. Equality means business.”Lise Kingo, UN Global Compact
About the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles
The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) guide businesses on how to promote gender equality and empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community. Jointly established by the UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are underpinned by international labour standards and human rights and by the recognition that businesses have an important role in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.
Adopting the seven principles is the best way that businesses can deliver on the ambitions for gender equality and women’s empowerment as outlined in the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and in the 17 SDGs.
“We congratulate Everphone for taking the first step on their WEPs journey. We consider Everphone a key partner in closing gender gaps in the workplace, marketplace and community and in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals.”Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
UN Women Executive Director
