Women make up half the world’s population, but, in most places, they don’t make up half its workforce. It’s not because they don’t want to work or have career aspirations of their own; it’s because gender discrimination, inequality and lack of access to opportunities continue to hold women back, keeping them out of the workforce and trapping them in the cycle of poverty.
A McKinsey Global Institute report finds that $12 trillion could be added to global GDP by 2025 by advancing women’s equality. The public, private, and social sectors will need to act to close gender gaps in work and society.
Our goal is to leverage on technology to reach out and empower women and girls by helping them have access to unlimited global opportunities and everything they need to pursue their dreams, thrive and make global impact.
