Tupperware Take Role in UN Women’s PSLA Council

July 2, 2014

Tupperware Brands has taken a role as a founding member of UN Women’s newly launched Private Sector Leadership Advisory Council. As part of this council, the company will collaborate with UN Women and select leading businesses to promote, support and accelerate initiatives that strengthen women’s economic empowerment.

The company has committed $500,000 to support UN Women’s work around the world and plans to amplify this commitment by launching cause-marketing programs in key markets like India and Brazil.  In addition, Tupperware Brands hopes to leverage its nearly 3 million global salesforce to advance UN Women and the company’s mutual commitment to women’s economic empowerment worldwide.

Led by UN Women’s Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, the invitation-only Private Sector Leadership Advisory Council will focus on accelerating women’s economic empowerment, ending violence against women and closing the funding gap for UN Women. The Council will also aim to expand economic opportunities for women by enhancing their access to skill building, education and financial literacy.

Other founding members include Jean-Paul Agon, chairman and CEO, L’Oréal; Maureen Chiquet, global chief executive officer, Chanel and  Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever.
