Measuring Success, Making It Count: Business Investing in Women and Girls 

Around the world, the business community champions women and girls’ empowerment. Join us on March 14—15, 2017 at the United Nations Headquarters and Grand Hyatt in New York City for our Women’s Empowerment Principles Forum. This year’s event, Measuring Success, Making It Count, will explore the role of the private sector in achieving the sustainable development agenda. We will look at different ways of measuring outcomes of initiatives to support women and girls and how to use data to drive discourse and action. This high-level event is a joint convening of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, United Nations Office for Partnerships, UN Women, and the UN Global Compact. It builds on past years’ celebrations of International Women’s Day and the annual events of the Women’s Empowerment Principles. We invite you to come together with more than 400 cross-sector leaders and innovators to elevate these important topics!
