Bridging the leadership gap with the next generation of girls and young women
Around the world, millions of girls and young women face unjust barriers and discrimination due to their age and gender. Female leadership is underrepresented across all industries, and programs like Girls Belong Here – including the powerful young women leading them – are working to change this disparity.
The World Economic Forum estimates that it will take a staggering 132 years to achieve gender equality. It’s time to support girls’ full participation in society, listen to their voices and invest in their skills – until we’re all equal.
