PRME and Business in Society (BIS) will present video interviews series' around the topic areas relevant to Higher Education Institutions and businesses committed to creating sustainable social, environmental and economic value.
The first series of interviews comes from the 2014 Annual Women's Empowerment Principles Event at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. In the videos, Anne-Marie Slaughter (President and CEO, New America Foundation), Barbara J. Krumsiek (President and CEO, Calvert Investments, Inc.) and Ursula Wynhoven (General Counsel, UN Women/UN Global Compact), contribute to the debate on gender equality in the workplace and beyond. Each give valuable insight on actions that can be taken to advance equality and champion women as leaders in societies and businesses around the world. Watch the 7-minute video here, and the full-length video of interviews here.
In the second video interview, Georg Kell, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact, highlights the work of the private sector in advancing—through Global Compact Working Groups and Local Networks—a set of core values in the areas of human rights, labour standards, the environment and anti-corruption.
Other issue-area interview videos, such as Human Rights and Water Rights, are available on the BIS website.
