The European House – Ambrosetti has ccarried out a research study on women’s empowerment, shared with the Minister for Equal Opportunities and the Family Elena Bonetti.
This was presented on 30 August during the first G20 Conference on women’s empowerment that took place in Santa Margherita Ligure.
The results of the work and the Manifesto which summarized its key principles was presented during the Conference by Valerio De Molli, Managing Partner & CEO of The European House – Ambrosetti and spokesperson for the G20 Business Advisory Board on Women’s Empowerment.
The board also published their Women’s Empowerment Manifesto, a document that aims to raise awareness and promote concrete suggestions for the achievement of gender equality and the support and enhancement of women’s talent.
The project wants to analyse the socio-economic phenomenon of female empowerment, which includes important rights and opportunities for growth and sustainable development, and to outline concrete policy proposals for women.
A spokesman said “Achieving gender equality is not just a matter of rights but also an opportunity for growth and sustainable development as well as a key element of the post-pandemic recovery that must leverage female talent.
“However, while gender equality is acknowledged to be of paramount significance, it is still far from a reality and will never be achieved through half measures.
“It is essential for both institutions and the business community to combine their efforts to implement joint policies aimed at promoting the full empowerment of women and achieving true gender equality.
Vodafone is one of the members of the newly launched G20 Business Advisory Board and one of the first signatories of the Women’s Empowerment Manifesto.
