We are Generation Equality and we rise for an equal future

Every day, through our actions, and in the way we lead, talk, question and act, we challenge norms, transform habits, change laws, take action and inspire others to create a world without gender-based discrimination. We are Generation Equality rising. In the throes of a global pandemic, how we act now matters more than ever. This International Women’s Day and as world leaders and activists prepare for the 2021 Generation Equality Forum, a global gathering to invest and innovate for gender equality, we are mobilizing to bring change. Join us.

Meet the changemakers who are fighting for gender equality

Around the world, millions of people are standing on the right side of history. This is Generation Equality. Activists, leaders, innovators, change-makers are working every day to build an equal future. Get inspired. Be the change.

Be Next.
Rise for equality.
