KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 15 (Bernama) -- Mary Kay Inc has continued its support of women’s entrepreneurship, empowerment and thought leadership as a sponsor for the 2022 International Women’s Forum (IWF) Cornerstone Conference.
According to a statement, the conference that took place on May 17-18 in Santiago, Chile, convened global decision makers who explored the most pressing challenges to progress on gender equality for the Latin American region.
For the first time ever, IWF commissioned groundbreaking research as part of its annual conference programming with funding by Mary Kay.
Conducted by the Latinobarómetro founded by Marta Lagos, this research, titled “Latin American Women: Democracy and Society from a Gender Perspective,” is the first-ever analysis of a quarter of a century (1995-2020) of public opinion and attitudes towards and by women on gender equality issues in 18 Latin American countries.
“Now, more than ever, the collection of gender data is crucial to inform advocacy and policy work. I am so pleased for Mary Kay to support this impressive compilation of research -- Latin American Women: Democracy and Society from a Gender Perspective.
“It is our collective and individual responsibility to learn from the experiences of women in Latin America and to use this data to keep pushing the needle to achieve gender equality in the region and around the world,” said chief operating officer at Mary Kay Inc, Deborah Gibbins.
Not only does this research reveal the most important changes in the opinions, attitudes, and behaviours of Latin American women over the last 25 years, but it also looks at the barriers to change.
