In this episode, we featured Ursula Wynhoven of the United Nations Global Compact Initiative. Ursula shares with us the responsibility that corporations around the world have to promote equality and ensure that everyone is entitled to their human rights. She also talks about the Women’s Empowerment Principles and the Children’s Rights and Business Principles that have become the focus of the UN Global Compact Initiative. Ursula provides staggering statistics and describes the effect that the work of the UN Global Compact will have in businesses and societies around the world. We also discuss the topic of unconscious bias and how anyone can find out whether or not they hold stereotypes about women and men without realizing it.
