Description

The Framework responds to APEC Leaders’ recognition that gender is a cross-cutting theme in APEC. It is a practical and systematic approach to guide APEC in the achievement of the integration of women in the mainstream of APEC processes and activities.

The PPWE was established at the second Senior Officials’ Meeting (SOM2) in May 2011 held at Big Sky, Montana, the United States. It combined the former APEC Gender Focal Point Network (GFPN) and the private sector-oriented Women’s Leadership Network (WLN) - creating a single public-private entity to streamline and elevate the influence of women’s issues within APEC.
