New Delhi: The Female Quotient (The FQ), a woman-owned business and engine of equality for women and companies worldwide launched its equality Lounge at the G20, marking a historic moment in the global push for gender equality.
The Female Quotient Lounge @ G20 builds on a legacy of pioneering work. Beginning at the World Economic Forum in 2016, The FQ first created an inclusive space where women were historically underrepresented. Today, the Equality Lounge® is the destination for conscious leaders to collaborate and inspire collective action for change at the world’s biggest industry conferences, including The World Economic Forum, Cannes, CES, and Advertising Week, among others. The Female Quotient’s partners at the Equality Lounge® at G20 include Deloitte and Tonomus.Neom.
Due to the leadership gap of women heads of state around the world, the G20 Summit has a history of underrepresentation. Currently, there are two women leaders – Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni and the President of the European Commission Ursula Von Der Leyen – who are invited to the official G20 Summit, yet neither has officially confirmed their attendance. What’s more, the agenda for the two-day G20 Summit does not address closing the gender gap directly.
The Equality Lounge® @ G20 will provide insights, strategies, and solutions to address gender inequality comprehensively. The FQ is actively working to inspire a new narrative and intentional mindset to break down barriers and drive meaningful change.
“It is reported that the gender gap won’t close for another 132 years, yet we were able to create a life-saving vaccine in less than one year, ” said Shelley Zalis, CEO and founder of The Female Quotient. “It’s time to make gender equality a priority at the G20 because when you advance women, you advance the economy.”
The eminent participants from India at the launch of Equity Lounge included Ms Vinita Bimbhet, Aarti Gupta, Kairavi Bharat Ram, & Preeti D’mello.
Now, with the Equality Lounge® at G20, the opportunity will for world leaders, policymakers, and industry titans to change the equation and work collaboratively to close the gender gap.
