Yelo Bank joined the UN Women's Empowerment Principles
Following its corporate social responsibility strategy, Yelo Bank has taken another step in supporting human capital development by joining the WEPs (UN Women's Empowerment Principles). These principles aim to promote equality in both professional life and society, and represent a global initiative developed by the UN.
Deputy Chairman of the Board of Yelo Bank Gunay Jalilova emphasized that the bank shares the positive mission of the UN: “At Yelo Bank, we are proud to have joined the UN Principles. Women are the driving force of society and development of small and medium-sized businesses. We are happy to support their entrepreneurial spirit. For us, equality and inclusion are not only words, but also core values that cover all areas of activity, divisions and departments of our Bank. Through this project, we aim to create opportunities that will help women overcome barriers, empower them and advance them into leadership positions. I believe this collaboration will light the way to a better and more equitable future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
It should be noted that Yelo Bank actively supports gender equality within the company and implements a number of projects for the education and professional development of women. As a member of the WEPs, the Bank is committed to developing an action plan that will further promote gender equality and positive change.
Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs) in Azerbaijan are being implemented within the framework of the Women's Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus (WEESC II) project of the United Nations Development Program. The project is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and the Austrian Development Agency.
