Livestream del 2 kl. 11.00

Livestream del 3 kl. 12.05

CARE Norway and NHO (The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise) welcome you to the go-to conference on gender equality in business 29th November!

New Connections is a global conference focusing on ways of achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 5 on Gender Equality. Women’s economic empowerment is a core part of this agenda, and a key challenge is to remove gender-based barriers in business. 

This year's conference will highlight how enterprises can work with gender equality as an instrument for profitability, and why men should engage in gender issues. We will also discuss the challenges of impunity in workplaces, and how international companies could work towards safer workplaces for women.
