Target Gender Equality Accelerator is a nine-month programme offered to companies participating in the United Nations Global Compact, who are looking to set and reach ambitious corporate targets for women’s representation, equal pay and leadership in business.

Through facilitated performance analysis, capacity building workshops, peer-to-peer learning and multi-stakeholder dialogue at country, regional and global levels, companies participating in Target Gender Equality Accelerator have the opportunity to deepen implementation of the Women’s Empowerment Principles and to strengthen their contribution to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Accelerator sessions include national (Russian) and global (English) tracks.

The programme stats in June and will be held online on the UN Local Network Russia platform.

Accelerator’s contribution to corporate practice:

- Raise awareness of the WEPs and instruments of implementation

- Confidently set ambitious and realistic targets for gender balance, women's leadership and equal pay for work of equal value

- Taking meaningful action towards SDG 5.5 and SDG 8.5

- Build a network of peers, UN partners and experts to support company’s gender equality strategy and work collectively to tackle persistent barriers to gender equality
