CSW68 Parallel event: Challenging corporate power to reduce poverty & strengthen human rights

Datum: 11-03-2024
Tijd: 10:30am (EDT) / 15:30 (CET)
Locatie: 11th Floor CCUN

Harmful corporate practices disproportionately impact women and gender diverse people.  They cause and exacerbate environmental and economic injustices, exposing communities to displacement and violence - reversing decades of progress in gender equality.


Worryingly, corporate actors are also being legitimized as primary stakeholders throughout UN spaces. But without strong binding standards to hold corporations accountable, a private-sector led approach will entrench and deepen gendered inequalities.


This event will highlight case studies illustrating how corporate power impacts women on the ground - particularly women human rights defenders - and inform feminist movements about getting involved in the UN binding treaty to regulate transnational corporations.
