Empowering women and advancing greater equality has the potential by 2025 to add $12 trillion to the global economy. Delivering greater opportunities for women can only be delivered by changing mind-sets and breaking down barriers.
Officially launched at the 70th United Nations General Assembly in New York, WiSER is an action oriented initiative that strives to position women and girls of all nationalities as drivers of change and innovation, while ensuring that their voices are heard across the sustainability debate.
The year-long platform is founded on the three core pillars of education, engagement and empowerment. At its heart, WiSER aspires to empower women with real-world experience to succeed in all sectors of the sustainability industry and to become sustainability leaders.
WiSER holds its annual Forum at ADSW, where influential women from around the world are invited to share their experience and expertise in pursuing a career in the sustainability industry.
