Mary Kay Inc. The global head of social impact and sustainability Virginia Naigeon-Malekov will speak at the summit with a contribution to the dark message built by women and the past order taking into account the gender perspective as another strategy for inclusive sustainable growth.
“Every fourth business in the world is owned by a woman. Yet women-owned businesses around the world receive on average less than 1% of all revenue from large corporations and governments on orders,” said Virginia Naigeon-Malekov. “These two statistics are two sides of the same coin: the eye-catching reality on the one side and the huge complexity that lies ahead of them on the other side. Effective policies and procedures in the area of previous contracts can be used as another strategy to support female entrepreneurs in their efforts to get out of economic impact of the pandemic and reassess business practices with regard to DEI to move towards inclusive growth. This huge gap in the represented pin community to progress in measures to support businesses around the world – a unique community, how to build not only better, but more equal.”
