UN Report: Investing in the pathways to employment
This year 2022 commemorates ten years of observance and increased attention on issues that matter to girls amongst governments, policymakers and the general public, and more opportunities for girls to have their voices heard on the global stage. Yet, investments in girls’ rights remain limited and girls continue to confront a myriad of challenges to fulfilling their potential.
Nearly 1 in 4 girls aged 15–19 globally are not in education, employment or training, compared to 1 in 10 boys. The analysis in this report lays out six core investment themes and examples of opportunities and calls on commercial organizations and investors to adopt bold approaches across these themes.
