UN Women HeForShe Alliance

About HeForShe

HeForShe is the United Nations global solidarity movement for Gender Equality. HeForShe is an invitation for men and people of all genders to stand in solidarity with women to create a bold, visible and united force for gender equality. The men of HeForShe aren’t on the sidelines. They’re working with women and with each other to build businesses, raise families, and give back to their communities.

How HeForShe supports our gender equity driver for change 

Men hold a disproportionate level of power across cultures globally, but they remain largely absent from the gender equity conversation.

As with other human rights and social justice movements like racial and LGBT+ equality, gender equality requires action and allyship across all of society.

At PwC, we are aware of the critical role that the private sector has in advancing gender equality, and partnering with UN Women HeForShe provides us a platform to act as role models in our industry but also join forces with HeForShe to truly accelerate the pace of change.

How we partner with HeForShe

At the World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2015, PwC became an IMPACT 10x10x10 champion – making PwC one of the first ten corporations around the world committing to take bold, game-changing action to achieve gender equality within and beyond their institutions. Skip forward to March 2021, and we were excited to renew our pledge to the HeForShe movement by becoming one of the inaugural HeForShe Alliance partners and making two PwC HeForShe Alliance commitments. 

The HeForShe Alliance is an intimate group of the most ambitious leaders from across government, the corporate world and third sector with the aim of accelerating progress towards gender equality.
