The UN has created this initiative because women still only have a 58%-70% share in the economic and political resources available to men. GEM Pty believes that this is wrong and that there needs to be more equality in the business world so that women have the same opportunities as men. Research suggests that when women are provided economic empowerment they outspend men on their family’s health, nutrition, and education by threefold. This proves that investing in women promotes economic and social development as women reinvest in their communities and homes.
