G100 DENIM CLUB
G100 is also supported by The Denim Club : Group of 100 He-for-She Champions globally, comprising leaders and luminaries from the business, corporate and political domains, each leading a sector of influence and having their companies and institutions in support of gender parity and equality. They will advocate for gender equity and balance, mitigate barriers to women’s leadership, commit to women’s greater C-suite representation, and fuel funding for female founders.
Why ‘Denim’ ? Because it’s symbolic of our common ground. While men may be from Mars and women from Venus; and while girls may grow with pink and boys with blue, denim belongs to all of us equally as a place of comfort for cool and candid conversations. The sturdy denim stands for the solid dialogue between genders and the strength of solidarity that we aspire for. Together we can co-create a better, balanced world for All.
The G100 Global Chair along with the G100 Denim Club Partner develop together for their G100 Wing policy recommendations to governments and multilateral institutions worldwide. The far-reaching impact will energize a million women by 2022, and 5 million by 2025.
Together, in joint collaboration and co-creation, we are committed to join our forces and strengths for a better world toward defining, designing and determining a new future for ourselves with equity, equal opportunity, inclusion and economic empowerment of women, and of all, through the inclusive agency of women, supported by men champions.
Membership to G100 and Denim Club is free and by invitation only. The endeavors are non-political, non-religious and non-dogmatic.
We are co-creating a bold and beautiful model of working together in shared vision and aligned actions with gender respect, balance and parity. Our stellar example of solidarity is a shining testimony to the power of women and men walking together in purpose and mutual empowerment for the greater good of a more sustainable, balanced, progressive and peaceful world for all.
