4th March, New Delhi: Global Compact Network India (GCNI) - A local arm of United Nations Global Compact, New York announced the third edition of its Gender Equality Summit, 2020 scheduled to be held at The Park, New Delhi on March 6th, 2020.

The theme of GCNI Gender Equality Summit (GES) 2020 is ‘India Inc for Generation Equality: Decade of Action’. Carrying forward the momentum built on two previous summits held in 2018 and 2019, the GES 2020 will focus on highlighting the role of the current generation in accelerating the gender equality agenda amongst India Inc. The theme for GES 2020 is aligned with the theme for International Women’s Day (8 March) 2020 ‘I am Generation Equality: Realizing Women’s Rights’.

Marking the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the year 2020 represents an unmissable opportunity to mobilize global action to achieve gender equality and human rights of all women and girls. ‘Generation Equality’ holds the potential to bring about change - from impacting the lives of rural entrepreneurs to transformation of formal urban workspaces, from policy to design, from institutional to social norms.

GES 2020 will deliberate on how 2020 India Inc can channel learnings and resources to mobilize and converge greater action towards gender equality, and gender neutrality across industries and sectors. GES 2020 will call on and bring together thought leaders from the Corporate Sector, Governments, not-for-profits and community at large to discuss how gender equality impacts work, and how the future of work would in turn impact gender equality in years to come.

This summit builds from the Goal 5 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) to unite India, as it calls for action from the Private Sector, Governments, not-for-profits and community at large. As we step into the next decade, this summit is a platform for discussing the issues in the current day and what is required to ensure gender equality in the years to come.
