The new UN Women Strategic Plan (SP) 2022-2025 identifies the private sector as one of the key stakeholders to partner with FOR impactful change (programme delivery) as well as a need TO influence and change the private sector itself. Additionally, in recent years, UN Women has seen a rise in partnership opportunities with the private sector. Recognizing the role and the potential of the private sector in accelerating progress on gender equality and delivering on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and in order to achieve the ambition behind its Strategic Plan, UN Women is embarking in the development of the new Private Sector Engagement Strategy (PSES) 2023-2025 and accompanying Results and Accountability Framework.

The UN Women Private Sector Engagement Strategy will be grounded in a human-rights approach with a clear impact-oriented gender lens. It will aim to: define specific areas of impact and results UN Women will aim to achieve during the period of the strategy, under the umbrella of the UN Women Strategic Plan and with view of contributing to delivery of SDG 5 (Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls) and SDG 17 (Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development); define specific partnership frameworks for engagement and risk appetite (particularly as relevant to engaging with sensitive and high-risk sectors and industries; and identify priority platforms and modes of engagement (e.g., knowledge building and exchange, resource mobilization, data collection, etc.)
