Alongside the United Nations General Assembly, key stakeholders from the global private and public sector gathered at UN Women's HeForShe Summit to reinforce commitments, share innovative solutions, and increase collaboration across sectors to achieve gender equality. 

With a growing pushback against women's rights, institutions and individuals have an increasing role and responsibility to play in the pursuit of gender equality. As a key moment along the midpoint for Generation Equality, the world's leading initiative to boost investment and implementation of gender equality, the HeForShe Summit calls for everyone to play their part and respectfully disrupt the patriarchal status quo that holds us back from closing current gender gaps. 

Sima Bahous, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women praised the HeForShe Champions from across government, business, non-profit and academia for stepping forward and taking action as gender equality advocates and allies.  

"Our corporate champions have increased participation of women in their Boards to a minimum of 40 per cent. This is commendable" - Sima Bahous, UN Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN 

Throughout the event, leaders reiterated a resounding call to action to respectfully disrupt. At the Summit, we unveiled two videos highlighting the HeForShe Champion’s progress on their commitments as part of the HeForShe Alliance.
