Our Gender Equality Division works to achieve gender equality by integrating gender across the foundation’s global work and investing in women’s economic empowerment, women’s leadership, and removing the barriers for women and girls to thrive.
Most economic empowerment programs focus on getting cash into women’s hands. However, we must go beyond empowerment programs and build economic systems that work for women.
The pandemic has affected millions around the world, with women among the hardest hit. As economies rebuild, new data show that when we prioritize solutions that help women, all people benefit.
