Why Women?

Gender inequality remains a key challenge. In the workplace, the gender pay gap is a real issue, and men continue to fill the majority of the highest-paid and most senior roles. Women also continue to be under-represented in leadership roles, in particular, those that influence policy. Yet, as identified by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, gender equality is key to creating an inclusive and sustainable world.

By 2030…

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development aims to end poverty, combat inequalities and promote prosperity while protecting the environment. “Women and girls make up more than half the world’s population — and they are on the frontlines — often more deeply impacted than men and boys by poverty, climate change, food insecurity, lack of healthcare, and global economic crises. Their contributions and leadership are central to finding a solution.”
