As a lead up to this year’s International Women's Day, join us to discover the advances the WBG has made in narrowing gender disparities in our vendor base. Learn about WBG’s achievement in surpassing the goal of doubling corporate procurement spend with women-owned businesses and help us shape future efforts aligned with the 2030 Gender Strategy.

During this event, the World Bank will discuss the important role of procurement in promoting gender equality and economic empowerment for women. The forum will serve as a platform to discuss procurement's impact on gender equality, share the WBG's achievements in surpassing its target of doubling corporate procurement from women-owned businesses, and set forth the 2030 goals for the supplier diversity & inclusion program. Participants will hear from experts strategies for strengthening private sector partnerships and fostering collective action with international peers to enhance the participation of women-owned and diverse suppliers in procurement processes.
