•  Description:

Creating conditions in which women can live, work, and thrive is an important imperative for empowering people, one of the G20 Saudi Arabia 2020’s presidency agenda. However, corruption disproportionately affects women by hampering the advancement of their jobs, business, and lives at the workplace and the marketplace as well as in the supply chain and the community.

How can mainstream gender considerations in public and corporate policies and actions for anti-corruption? What are the roles and actions of the government, business, and civil society organizations to address the linkages between corruption and its impacts on gender and strive for cross-sector collaboration promoting women’s civic, social, and economic rights?

Representatives of B20, C20, W20, and global experts of international organizations will discuss the ways to support women towards a more equitable future by transforming them from victims to change makers in fighting corruption.
