The Indonesia Business Coalition for Women Empowerment (IBCWE) is a coalition of companies committed to promoting women’s economic empowerment and gender equality. Our mission is to support businesses to play an optimal role in improving women’s economic empowerment and gender equality.

IBCWE members believe that business, along with government and civil society, has an important role to play in reducing inequality, alleviating poverty, and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This reason motivated them to jointly form IBCWE and invite leading companies in Indonesia to promote women’s economic empowerment and gender equality.
