Supplier Diversity: Women Owned Businesses (WOB)

WOMEN OWNED BUSINESSES

The UN Secretariat is dedicated to providing opportunities to Women Owned Businesses, in line with Sustainable Development Goal #5 – of achieving gender equality and empowering all women and girls.

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world.

The United Nations Secretariat is dedicated to increasing the participation of Women Owned Business in its procurement of goods and services. The Office of Supply Chain Management will continue to both support and develop initiatives that promote this goal.

The United Nations continues to engage in partnerships to leverage resources and develop new initiatives towards achieving its goals to break down the barriers that prevent women owned businesses in participating in the global marketplace.
