Challenge: Business are increasingly recognizing the benefits that come from supporting women and families. How can they put best practices into action?   

Approach: An integrated approach to women's economic empowerment delivers higher return on investment (ROI) across the corporate value chain, as well as bringing social returns. The "Business Case for Women's Economic Empowerment: An Integrated Approach" presents eight building blocks for how corporations implement this integrated approach across its value chain. 

Building on the success of the Business Case for Women's Economic Empowerment, Assemblyfor and WithoutViolence partnered to develop the "Business Case for Families," which outlines how business can increase productivity, strengthen their brand, and grow revenues by supporting parents and children throughout their business activities.
