About the Declaration on Action by “A Group of Male Leaders Who Will Create a Society in Which Women Shine”
In March 2014, a “Conference to Support Women Who Shine” was held at the prime minister’s official residence. This opportunity allowed a group of male leaders who wished to promote the success of women in business to formulate of the Declaration on Action, and they became “A Group of Male Leaders Who Will Create a Society in Which Women Shine.”
Male leaders who serve at the top of their organizations formulated the declaration around three main pillars, designed to increase the motivation of a wide variety of women and make it possible for them to fully utilize their abilities: “Taking Actions and Sending Messages Ourselves,” “Disrupting the Status Quo,” and “Developing Networking.”
Male leaders who endorse the Declaration on Action are committing to working in parallel with the statements of the declaration, as well as aiming to expand the circle of influential male leaders who support the goals of the declaration.
