What is Equity@Scale?
It takes a village to close the gender gap.
Women make up half the world and are the fastest-growing emerging market, yet they face one of the greatest injustices of our time—exclusion from financial markets without a value or a voice in the system.
Equity@Scale empowers leaders and organizations, men and women, with access to knowledge, networks, capital, and resources to transform the world for women’s empowerment.
Women are at the core of the global economy
Advancing gender equality could boost global GDP by US$12 trillion by 2025, while empowering women, their families, communities, and countries.
Impact Enterprises face barriers accessing different forms of capital
Impact Enterprises innovating solutions to social and environmental problems face great difficulty accessing human, social, financial, and economic capital, and even more so for enterprises improving women’s livelihoods.
We need to mobilize everyone to catalyze change
In order to unlock US$10 million of capital for gender equality and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we need everyone—impact enterprises, investors, leaders, corporate partners—to catalyze change.
Whether you are an entrepreneur, investor, business leader, educator, advocate, or policymaker, you have a role in empowering underserved women across the world. Equity@Scale is designed for you to access an ecosystem of support, markets, and global networks, investment opportunities and premier leadership programs to take action for gender equality (SDG5).
