APEC Turns to Proven Formula in Women’s Empowerment Push
Economic development and gender officials from APEC members have introduced new individual action plans for advancing women’s representation in leadership within their economies over the next five years. Their intent is to replicate the success of the APEC region’s comparable approach to market integration initiated two decades ago that established it as the world’s preeminent driver of trade and economic growth. Under the scheme, APEC member economies are developing their own set of measurable and aspirational voluntary goals towards enhancing the role of women in leadership, decision-making and management across the public and private sectors, while taking into account the individual economic and social circumstances of each economy. APEC members will endeavor to meet their respective goals by the end of 2020. Currently, two-thirds of APEC’s 21 members have already submitted an individual action plan as part of the scheme.
