UNFPA, Country Office in Ukraine, works on building a society free of gender stereotypes and violence. We work with international, national and business partners.
In 2019 UNFPA initiated the creation of the first Corporate Alliance in Ukraine, which stimulates its efforts to promote gender equality and prevent domestic violence.
At the end of 2019, the first 12 companies and 2 business communities signed the Declaration. As of the end of 2021, 40 companies have already joined and pledged to make maximum efforts in order to:
– To mainstream the gender-sensitive approaches in the work of companies, create conditions for decent work and equal employment, and practice family-friendly policies;
– To contribute to the prevention of domestic violence and establishing zero tolerance to all its forms;
– To develop and promote cooperation to empower women’s rights, gender equality and the establishment of zero tolerance to domestic violence.
The initiative is being implemented by UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, and the expert organization Center for Corporate Social Responsibility Development.
