The HeForShe Champions initiative confronts the gender inequalities faced in three key pillars of society: government, work and academia. Each Champion has made specific, stretching and measurable commitments towards achieving gender equality. This Report updates their progress over the past year, with hard data on gender representation and highlights of key achievements. This publication is packed with ideas turned into reality. It is a testament to the vision and hard work of everyone involved in the initiative.



A note from the executive director

This year’s Emerging Solutions report takes us from aspiration to evidence. The accounts from our Champions detail with honesty and self-knowledge the individual journeys they have made in leading transformative change within their organizations and communities. Collectively they are tackling the thorny issues that are common barriers to progress in societies and businesses across the world: from equal pay to equality and diversity in senior representation: from safety for students and faculty on campus to promotion of justice and fairness in well policed communities: from closing the digital divide and ICT access, to championing STEM education: from recognizing and taking steps to end gender stereotyping in advertising, to sensitizing themselves and their workforces to unconscious bias, and by recognizing it, limiting damage.
