United Nations Global Compact 2024 Target Gender Equality Accelerator Programme

United Nations Global Compact 2024 Target Gender Equality Accelerator Programme – Target Gender Equality Accelerator is a nine-month programme offered to companies participating in the United Nations Global Compact, who are looking to set and reach ambitious corporate targets for women’s representation, equal pay and leadership in business.

Through facilitated performance analysis, capacity building workshops, peer-to-peer learning and multi-stakeholder dialogue at country, regional and global levels, companies participating in Target Gender Equality Accelerator have the opportunity to deepen implementation of the Women’s Empowerment Principles and to strengthen their contribution to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Led by the UN Global Compact, this programme aims to support businesses in taking meaningful action towards SDG 5.5, which calls for equal women’s representation, participation and leadership in business globally, and SDG 8.5, which aims to achieve equal pay for work of equal value by 2030. Companies will be equipped with the latest data and research supporting the business case for gender equality, gain insights from UN partners and experts on how to accelerate progress on gender equality and develop an action plan for putting their learnings into practice.
