The role of women and girls in the areas of STEM, finance, and agriculture is transforming the work force demographic not only as founders and leaders, but also as highly valued customers, around the world. We are featuring some of the best practices and partnerships required to create sustainable economic development for women – particularly within the marginalized communities of certain parts of the world (including developed nations). By featuring some of the most innovative partnership solutions in business, finance, and community organizing, we aim to accelerate the knowledge transfer among UN CSW participants from around the world and increase females who are helping achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
