International Women's Day - March 8

Vital Voices Joins Google.org on New $25 Million Challenge to Empower Women and Girls

At Vital Voices, we know that when women and girls have access, opportunities and resources to help turn their potential into power, their prosperity lifts up entire communities. And we know that the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed and exacerbated inequities and undone decades of progress. To truly achieve equality, we have a collective responsibility to clear pathways to progress.

That’s why, this International Women’s Day, we are so excited to partner with Google.org & Project Everyone to launch the Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls! The Challenge is a US$25M open call for ideas from nonprofits and social enterprises around the world to advance economic empowerment of women and girls. Learn more and submit your bold ideas to transform economic opportunities today!
