Alliance of Women

Oct. 3, 2020

Gender equality is one of the UN's sustainable development goals. Maybe it would be easier to achieve if the world had as many statues of women to look up to as it has of men. This inspiring group pf women are leading the Gender Alliance, to pursue the UN's goal.

In December 2019, some 30 female leaders from across the globe gathered together in Mérida, Mexico. They came from fields as varied as cyber law, peacebuilding, human trafficking and education, and they were meeting to kick off a new initiative, the Gender Alliance. 

The mission for the alliance’s members, who include men as well as women, is to pursue the UN’s sustainable development goal No. 5, on gender equality, within their own organisations and communities: speaking up on behalf of women and girls, and fighting for justice. Members come from a quartet of organisations: the BMW Foundation Responsible Leaders Network, the Global Diplomacy Lab, the Bosch Alumni Network and the Global Leadership Academy Community.
