It’s a popular catchphrase – but what does it really mean? And, more importantly, what does it mean to YOU?
Empowerment creates power in people – in their lives and in their communities. Women’s empowerment equips and allows women to make life-determining decisions.
Empowerment in the workplace is:
Finding ways to amplify the female voice.
Diversifying leadership by promoting women.
Establishing goals for improving gender diversity.
Paying equal wages for equal work and equal experience.
Promoting equitable parental leave policies.
Female empowerment can be categorized into five main parts: social, educational, economic, political, and psychological.
We can empower women by:
Providing the ticket to education: clean water.
Supporting girls and women in crisis.
Mentoring young girls.
Investing in small business owners.
Ending preventable deaths of mothers and children.
Helping new moms.
Caring for other women.
