Empowering the 85%: The role of business in empowering female garment workers

Clock icon 13:30 - 13:30
There are 40 million garment workers in the world today, of which roughly 85% are women. Research by Fashion Revolution shows that gender-based inequality is still a major problem across the industry. This session will provide insight into the daily realities facing women in the garment industry, and how brands can empower women through projects that further their participation at the workplace.  An interactive session will help to illustrate the power of participation for women’s empowerment.
