RSM International and 40+ Member Firms Embrace Gender Equality through UN Women Empowerment Principles: Exclusive Interview with Global Head of the WEPs

The Business Benefits of Implementing the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles

RSM International and nearly 40 Member Firms have made a commitment to the seven UN Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs), which aim to empower women in various areas of life. These principles advocate for gender equality in areas such as equal pay, leadership opportunities, and safe working environments. By embracing these principles, businesses can attract and retain diverse talent, improve decision-making processes, and contribute to sustainable development, particularly Sustainable Development Goal 5.

In a video interview, Jean Stephens, CEO of RSM International, talks with Anna Fälth, Global Head of the WEPs Global Secretariat at UN Women. Anna explains how businesses can benefit from supporting women and committing to the WEPs. She highlights that by aligning with these principles, businesses can enhance their corporate reputation, drive innovation, and boost financial performance.

Anna emphasizes that by promoting gender equality in the workplace and marketplace, businesses can create a more inclusive and successful society. She believes that embracing these principles is not only beneficial for women but also essential for creating a better future for everyone. As she puts it: “Empowering women is not just about doing the right thing; it’s also about doing good business.”
