Strengthen Women's Political Participation & Decision-Making Power

Imagine a world with more women in charge – in the boardroom and in politics. Evidence proves that when #WomenLead, there is a significant return on investment – both socially and financially. If we are serious about achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, then we must make a concerted effort to strengthen women’s political participation and leadership.

As the global community prepares to celebrate women this month on International Women’s Day & during the UN Commission on the Status of Women, now is the time to give girls & women a seat AND a voice at the decision-making table.
