UN Women is proud to be recognizing business action to implement the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) with the third edition of the Asia-Pacific WEPs Awards. After receiving more than 500 applications from 19 Asia-Pacific countries and holding National WEPs Awards Ceremonies in seven countries, the 2022 WEPs Awards Regional Ceremony will be the final culminating event to unveil the region’s top private sector champions for gender equality.
The Asia-Pacific WEPs Awards was initiated in 2020 by WeEmpowerAsia, which was a three-year UN Women programme funded by and in partnership with the European Union that sought to enhance gender-inclusive business cultures and create more inclusive and equitable economies in Asia-Pacific and Europe. The 2022 Awards is co-organized with the continued support of the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) as part of UN Women and DFAT’s broader strategic partnership in Asia-Pacific.
