Strengthens engagement and promotes gender equality

HONG KONG, October 26, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Doo Group became a signatory to the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP) in August 2021, as part of its long-term commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

WEPs provide a framework to help businesses empower women in the workplace, in the market and in the community.

“We value and support women who serve inside and outside the home. We are committed to strengthening gender equality in the workplace, in leadership roles and in business. Women are the core and backbone of our communities and without them no nation can prosper or succeed, ”said Marc Grand, CEO of the Doo Group.

A step forward for women in the trading industry

Despite increased investment and business engagement, women remain unequal in most societies around the world. In this context, women face a number of obstacles to full economic participation and the full realization of their rights – women’s civil and political rights, their right to health and their right to education are often marginalized.

By joining the WEP community, the CEO marks his commitment to gender equality at the highest levels of the company and to working collaboratively in multi-stakeholder networks to foster business practices that empower women. These include equal pay for work of equal value, gender responsive supply chain practices and zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace.

Endorse the principles of women’s empowerment

The WEP Core Principles are a primary vehicle for companies to implement the gender dimensions of their 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals.

WEPs represent a powerful platform for sharing lessons learned on how gender equality relates to their bottom line, how to make progress in this area, and how to track results.

Adopting these principles put forward by WEP is an ideal way for companies to realize their ambitions for gender equality and the empowerment of women, as outlined in their 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. and in the 17 SDGs.

To achieve greater equality for women, we embrace the Seven Principles of WEP to Empower Women in the Workplace, Market, and Community.
