"HeForShe X Nordic Countries: Women Economic Empowerment Forum" was held in Shanghai on June 16. 👏👍💪The Forum was hosted by UN Women🌍, Royal Danish Consulate General in Shanghai🇩🇰, Royal Norwegian Consulate General in Shanghai🇳🇴，Consulate General of Finland in Shanghai🇫🇮，Consulate General of Sweden in Shanghai🇸🇪，and Hangzhou International Exchange & Service Center.
Hangzhou has been an active participant in global issues. 🤜Aiming at the advancement of women, "HeForShe" is a campaign initiated by UN Women through encouraging boys and men to take actions against inequalities faced by girls and women. It is already the fourth continuous year that Hangzhou International Exchange & Service Center has been holding serial activities of "HeForShe". So far, it has organized 21 "HeForShe" conferences and activities, attracting about 30,000 participants in total.🎉🎉 On the forum, Consulates and representatives from Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden talked about the situation of gender equality, as well as experiences in dealing with such issue of their own countries. Woman economic empowerment has been paid with special attention in Nordic countries, and the results are well reflected in the statistics (for example, in Finland, more than 1/3 of top business executives are female now); but they stressed that it was far from enough, a lot of improvements would have to be made.
