Women Help Women Meet Sustainable Development Goals

Beyond the obvious- how does progress on UN Sustainability Goals relate to progress for women? In a recent webinar, Lynn Wilson, Executive Director of SeaTrust Institute and I shared our experiences and insights from the UN Climate Summits and research on women entrepreneurs and leaders.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals include 169 targets, of which at least 30 relate directly to the lives of women and girls in a changing environment. We held a webinar Tuesday, May 10, 2016 at 17:00:00 to look  at the critical targets and discuss ways to use corporate social responsibility (CSR) projects, research, and partnerships to create a better future for women and girls.

We will focus on three themes:
1. Access to education and training;
2. Inclusive societies; and
3. Sustainable jobs and entrepreneurship.

For each theme,we examined relevant goals and targets, highlight successful examples, and discuss work to be done.
