Limage Media Group adopts the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs)
Limage Media Group has adopted the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.
Limage Media Group CEO Stephanie Limage signed the Principles on November 11th, 2020.
CEO Stephanie said: “Limage Media Group has a long track record of international social impact, we are committed to partnering with community arts groups, educational institutions, individuals, media groups and community stakeholders from marginalized and underrepresented communities (First Nations, LGBTQIA+, Women, Immigrants, Minorities & Refugees). We are committed to the goals of the WEP as well as implementing the WEP's into our governance by joining the global community of companies taking action to achieve gender equality as we believe in the umbrella effect. In order to achieve common goals, we all need one another which in turn creates more social impact and systemic change”.
"Women represent half of the world’s population, yet remain under-represented in the global workforce. Not only an affront to human rights and equality, barriers to women’s empowerment also hurt economic growth. That’s why we are calling on business leaders everywhere to implement the Women’s Empowerment Principles and I want to thank you for joining the evergrowing community of WEPs signatories. We need ALL companies to get onboard, because gender equality is more than a moral responsibility. Equality means business" - LISE KINGO, UN Global Compact Executive Director
"We congratulate Limage Media Group for taking the first step on their WEPs journey. We consider Limage Media Group a key partner in closing gender gaps in the workplace, marketplace and community and in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals". - PHUMZILE MLAMBO-NGCUKA UN Women Executive Director
The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) guide businesses on how to promote gender equality and empower women in the workplace, marketplace and community. Jointly established by the UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are underpinned by international labour standards and human rights and by the recognition that businesses have an important role in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment. Adopting the seven principles is the best way that businesses can deliver on the ambitions for gender equality and women’s empowerment as outlined in the 2030 Agenda on Sustainable Development and in the 17 SDGs.
