Rochester Hills, MI (PRWEB) March 13, 2014

Held over two days, the 6th Annual Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) event, Gender Equality and the Global Jobs Challenge, spotlighted business strategies, experience and challenges on increasing and enhancing job opportunities for women and expanding access to decent jobs.

The Women’s Empowerment Principles is a joint initiative between the UN Global Compact and UN Women. This year’s event featured a conversation series that provided short, interactive discussions that highlighted a number of WEPs-related platforms, activities and engagement opportunities, research and data that is all working towards achieving gender equality.

In an effort to bolster high-level corporate leadership for gender equality, in June 2010, the UN Women/UN Global Compact WEPs partnership launched a CEO Statement of Support for the Women’s Empowerment Principles.

In the fall of 2013, Lori Blaker signed the CEO Statement of Support. Through this action Blaker joined with other business leaders from across the globe and gave her support for advancing equality between women and men.

Blaker states “At TTi we support and believe in the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles. These are seven principles that have been developed through research and study on gender issues and what companies can do to support gender equality.”

“I would encourage all businesses to embrace these principles. It is the right thing to do. It is good for business and needs to be a priority,” states Blaker. “For TTi Global, this commitment results in bringing the broadest pool of talent to our organization. It furthers our companies’ competitiveness. We are pleased to participate in the 6th Annual WEP event and other programs that support the full participation of women within enterprises and within the larger community. The full engagement of women makes sound business sense.”

President and CEO, Lori Blaker heads of one of the fastest growing women-led organizations in North America. Her leadership skills continue to be recognized by the business community. In 2012 President/CEO Lori Blaker received the “Leader of Leaders” Award from Leadership Oakland. Under her leadership, TTi Global has ranked consistently among the "Top 25 Woman-Run Businesses in the USA" as recognized by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council.
