GLOBAL GOALS & GRAND CHALLENGES
On September 25, 2015 at the United Nations General Assembly, world leaders agreed on working towards achieving 17 Sustainable Development Goals, or Global Goals, for the next 15 years, intended to tackle global grand challenges: end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all.
At Womensphere, we are dedicated to helping achieve Global Goal #5 on Gender Equality, and empowering women and girls to be active participants and leaders in shaping the vision and creating solutions to help achieve the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. The World Economic Forum has also prioritized Gender Parity among its global priorities and Global Challenge Initiatives.
We will make progress on these goals in part through the Womensphere Innovation Lab and the above initiatives.

Through a number of initiatives under the Womensphere Innovation Lab, we will empower women to further develop knowledge and skills, and leverage their understanding of science, mathematics, technology, the arts, coding, and media, to share vision and create solutions that help achieve the Global Goals for Sustainable Development.
