*W20 (Women 20) is one of G20's engagement groups, and is an organization that provides women empowerment related policy recommendations to the G20. The primary objective of the W20 is to meet the "25 by 25" commitment in the 2014 G20 Brisbane Summit, which aims to reduce the gender gap in workplace participation by a quarter by 2025. By closing the gender gap, we will continue to propose to G20 leaders to develop a new type of economic growth that does not leave anyone behind.
