The WEPs are a set of seven principles that support companies to take a gender-sensitive approach throughout their value chain starting with corporate leadership and looking across the wider value chain from workplace, marketplace and community.

The WEPs Awards was launched in September in many countries in the Asia-Pacific region with the aim of encouraging and recognising the efforts of companies that promote practices, programmes and actions to create more gender-inclusive business cultures embracing the gender equality and women’s empowerment, raise awareness, and mobilise more companies to implement the WEPs within their own business.

Elisa Fernandez Saenz, UN Women Vietnam Country Representative, said that the WEPs Awards recognise leaders and businesses’ efforts to promote gender equality for their employees, consumers and partners, and at the same time inspire other leaders and businesses to take action to bring about greater effects.
