City Inn has adopted the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) as part of its commitment to promoting gender equality and women empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.

City Inn manager signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) on 22.02.2023 and pledged: “We are dedicated to advancing gender equality, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace, and part of that involves ensuring that everyone feels free to be themselves at work. We firmly believe that empowered women can contribute to the growth of peace and security, create new sources of wealth, develop sustainable businesses, instill a culture of innovation, and more resilient and equitable economies, especially in our small country. Thus, we are determined to create a safe space for women and empower them to pursue their goals.”

City Inn values and supports each one of its staff and our goal is to treat everyone equally and fairly in the workplace, and not give preferential or unfavorable facilities or treatment based on age, disability, gender, gender identity, gender expression, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnerships, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, color, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation, or any other class or category.

Joining the WEPS community is another step towards sustainable business, always aiming to foster business culture and practices that advance gender equality, women’s empowerment, diversity and inclusion.

 ABOUT THE WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT PRINCIPLES

The Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) are a set of Principles offering guidance to business on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community. Established by UN Global Compact and UN Women, the WEPs are underpinned by international labour and human rights standards and by the recognition that businesses have an important role in promoting gender equality and women’s empowerment.

WEPs are a primary vehicle for corporate delivery on gender equality dimensions of the 2030 agenda and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. By joining the WEPs community, the CEO signals commitment to this agenda at the highest levels of the company and to work collaboratively in multistakeholder networks to foster business practices that empower women. These include equal pay for work of equal value, gender-responsive supply chain practices and zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace.
