Call for Papers: Women have charmed the business world with their unique perspective for quite some time. Why companies are adding more women board members? Because it helps to increase the financial, social and environmental performance of the companies, however list of women CEOs of Fortune 500 companies shows that women held 6.6 percent of Fortune 500 CEO roles. Many institutions and regulations still force business and management world to invite women into the board and executive positions. Women’s equality and empowerment are one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, but also integral to all dimensions of inclusive and sustainable development. In short, all the SDGs depend on the achievement of Goal 5. Gender equality by 2030 requires urgent action to eliminate the many root causes of discrimination that still curtail women’s rights in private and public spheres. In this conference, we plan to discuss the role of women in accounting, finance, economy and related law on the way to SDGs 2030. Panels will be organized on; Women in Accounting, Women in Finance, Women in Capital Markets, Implementation of SDG 5, Women in Business, Women in Management.
