The issue of women’s economic empowerment, in particular as it pertains to their taking senior management positions at large companies, is becoming increasingly important, as is the need to develop business standards to enhance the contribution of women executives for sustainable economic development. What is the role of politicians and business leaders in engaging more women in economic activity? What specific measures should be taken to promote women’s leadership in manufacturing and the public sector? How can a global partnership for women’s economic empowerment and leadership be forged? What are the prospects for women executives in the era of digitalization and the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0)?
