Women Rising Initiative (under development)

The global ascendancy of women is the defining social issue of this century, and while progress has been made in highlighting the myriad forms of gender inequality, the list of issues that require sustained attention is long, complex, and different in every national context.

Corporations have much to gain from supporting the continued march toward female empowerment. We believe that new structures are needed to facilitate collaborative, expanded capital deployment by corporations that can positively impact brand value and support economic growth in societies where they operate and seek to expand.
