WEPS AWARDS 2020
October – December, 2020
LeadWomen, together with UN Women, will be inviting 300 companies to commit to gender equality by signing up to the Women Empowerment Principles. 20% of these companies need to be EU listed companies. There are three exciting opportunities and events coming up that you can get involved in: 1. The Asia – Pacific WEPs Awards – Deadline 5 October; 2. The WEPs Awareness Training – 5 November; 3. WEPs Malaysia Campaign Launch – 2 December. The awards are open to all companies in Asia. There currently have been no submissions from companies based in Malaysia. We believe, and know, that Malaysian companies have been exemplary in promoting and delivering on gender equality and as such we hope to see many Malaysian corporates apply for the Awards. Timed with the 10th anniversary of the WEPs, this is a unique opportunity for business leaders and companies to be recognized and make their efforts to advance gender equality visible amongst their customers, employees and partners, as well as inspire others to take action for wider impact. The 2020 Asia-Pacific WEPs Awards are open to WEPs signatories and non-signatories, from all Asia-Pacific countries, and will recognize initiatives in the following categories: Leadership, Youth Leadership (for leaders until 30 years of age), Gender – Inclusive Workplace, Gender – Responsive Marketplace, Community and Industry Engagement, and COVID – 19 Action.
