….and the race is on! Coke steps in to also do some good…


The Coca-Cola Company and UN Help Accelerate Women’s Economic Empowerment

Coke finds relevance in focusing on the economic development of women.The company has already given $ 9.6 million to 40 global community organizations around the world to encourage social entrepreneurship amongst women. And now it plans to participate in   the UN’s Women’s Strategic Plan which envisages building business skills in women to improve their economic situation. I wonder whether these programs take into account the pressure growing economic and professional success places on women who also have children to bring up. And do these programs then build in initiatives/suggestions that can support women when faced with this challenge. But all such endeavors deserve praise.
