[W20 Session: Women's Economic Empowerment of G20 Countries]

Synopsis: Women 20 (W20) is a transnational network that brings together women leaders of business, entrepreneurship ventures, think tanks, and civil society, as one of the official policy engagement groups of Group 20 (G20), representing more than 80% of the global GDP.

Incepted in Australia, throughout G20 Turkish, Chinese, German, Argentine, and Japanese presidencies, it has influenced the agenda of the decision-making bodies of G20 and impacted public and private policies to increase women’s economic empowerment of G20 countries.

Annually, W20 prepares and submits the W20 communiqué each year to the state leader of a G20 presidency country, as the list of policy recommendations through online and offline dialogues among delegates of G20 countries as well as experts from content partners and international organizations in various topics, such as labor inclusion, digital equality, financial equity, rural development, and governance etc.

1. What were the key highlights and achievements of each year? What are differentiating characteristics of W20, compared with other global gender policy platforms?

2. What are significant global challenges for gender equality in G20 countries? How could G20 and W20 address those challenges?

3. What is the biggest challenge for gender equality in each country? How does each country endeavor to improve it? How have G20 and W20 helped or would they be helpful for it?
