In 2017, HeForShe invited us to design the 50-plus page HeForShe Impact Report 2017.
For 2018, the challenge was even bigger: the report includes commitments from Presidents and Prime Ministers of Japan, Canada, Finland, Sweden and Rwanda, the CEOs of Unilever, Vodafone, Barclays, Danone and Electronic Arts. Commitments from Presidents of universities such as Georgetown, Leicester, São Paulo, Nagoya, and the Institut d’études Politiques de Paris are also part of the report
The work needed for the second year of our partnership was, in few words, wide-ranging. HeForShe’s partners do remarkable work in their efforts to achieve gender parity at their organizations, academic institutions and nations. This is the kind of work which deserves to be properly highlighted, but the breadth and diversity of their initiatives, as well as the individual level of progress of each, was mind-boggling.
