In 2015, UN Women developed the campaign Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality, an initiative asking governments to make national commitments to address the challenges that are holding women and girls back from reaching their full potential. In the spirit of Step It Up, we ask for your support in stepping it up for gender equity and empowerment around the globe. The IWF and Leadership Foundation, as a global network of women leaders, can shatter the glass ceiling and imagine a world free of limits.
The IWF Leadership Foundation’s 2015-2016 Fellows Class composed a video montage featuring their perspectives on what it will take to achieve gender equality and women’s empowerment by 2030.
Join us in making a pledge for parity and gender equality! In the wise words of anthropologist and women’s rights activist Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world: indeed it’s the only thing that ever has.”
