Held in observance of International Women’s Day, the 2016 WEPs Annual Event, Business Partners for Gender Equality: Multipliers for Development, brought together inspirational business leaders, including innovative female entrepreneurs, with civil society, the UN and Government, to scale-up business action and unleash the full potential of women and girls. Through high-level panels and interactive sessions, participants dove into how diverse companies around the world are implementing the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) and helping to achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), set forth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Day 2 was held at the Wyndham New Yorker Hotel. Joseph Keefe, President and Chief Executive Officer, Pax World Funds, introduces women leading business today. Erika Karp, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Cornerstone Capital Inc., shares her story.
