Global Shapers believe in Gender Equality


With support from Procter & Gamble and inspiration from their #WeSeeEqual campaign, our community of more than 7,000 young people is raising awareness and mobilising action in the fight for gender equality.

The World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report 2018 reveals that we are a long way from reaching equality.
