According to World Business Council for Sustainable Development “Corporate Social Responsibility is the continuing commitment by business to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of the workforce and their families as well as of the local community and society at large”.
Over the past decade, gender equality and women’s empowerment have been explicitly recognized as key not only to the health of nations, but also to social and economic development.
Time to shift from Charity to Responsibility
We all know how the influx of women into the labor force ushered in significant gains in economic growth and worker productivity. This rise in the women’s share of the workforce since just the 1980s is responsible for as much as 11 percent of 2012 GDP.
• Women being underrepresented among the ranks of entrepreneurs, is not just a gender or a fairness issue—it is an issue of economic growth.
• By addressing the gender gap in entrepreneurship, policymakers can unleash a wealth of ingenuity and creativity that can spark a new era of entrepreneur-led growth in the world.
