To mark International Women’s Day, Fenerbahçe, one of the largest and most popular sports clubs in Turkey and a champion for the HeForShe campaign, and UN Women spotlighted the importance of women’s equal participation and empowerment in sports.
In 2018, as part of Exelon’s commitment to HeForShe, the Exelon Foundation invested $3 million over three years to encourage and support young women’s involvement in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and develop tomorrow’s workforce.
In 2018, UN Women Germany launched the HeForShe Germany Catalyst Program with four catalysts and expanded to include two more catalysts on March 8, 2020. These six catalysts use their expertise in a wide range of formats to raise awareness and motivate people to take an active role in promoting gender equality.
