OCT . 11 . 2020
Despite progress in recent years, women around the world still face many obstacles especially pertaining to global gender gaps in leadership. For instance:
13 out of 193
nations in the UN have women as heads of state
Less than 30%
of the world’s scientific researchers are women
Every hour, somewhere in the world, members of national parliaments or legislatures are making decisions on important issues, and worldwide only
24.3% of these key people are women
Only 37 of the Fortune 500 companies have a female as CEO, an all-time record
but a rate of only 7.4%
Minority women are especially underrepresented in STEM fields – of all U.S. women earning PhDs in science and engineering, fewer than
4% were Latina and under 3% were Black

We want to amplify the disruptive force of women
Today, women represent the most significant disruptive force of the world— however as per the recent Global Gender Gap Report, it will take 108 years to achieve gender equality.
We need next generation of future female leaders to deliver the UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (SDG 2030).
We can’t wait any longer, the timing is right to inspire young girls to find their hero. The one that helps them believe they can do whatever it is they want to.
To not give up. To not hold back. To be fearless in their pursuit to change the world. Every girl deserves a choice and a chance to make an impact.
Join our global movement to accelerate future female leadership and inspire the next generation of young girls, in a bold new way that is about equality, choice and putting women’s voice on center stage.
