We are UN Women, the only global agency dedicated to gender equality
Our aim is to remove the social and cultural barriers that prevent women and girls from achieving their potential.
In the UK, UN Women is represented through the National Committee, and we focus on awareness, advocacy and activation.
Help us create a brighter future for women and girls worldwide
There are many ways to get involved and start making a difference today – from donating money, to fundraising by running a marathon or organising a brunch with your friends, plus much more!
UN Women's Annual Report
In the 2016-2017 annual report, UN Women highlights the ways we support work at national and global levels, to turn the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development into results for women and girls worldwide.
Better financial education needed among UK women
What are the barriers to women in the UK saving and investing money? And what can the financial services industry do to help? Research shows that 46 per cent of women in the UK do not have any financial investments. The need for improved financial education among women is clear.
Bursary for Female Comedians
The 99 Club – London’s biggest employer of stand-up comedians, was one of our official partners during UN Women UK HeForShe Arts Week 2017.
Inspired by that partnership, they have announced a unique bursary for female performers taking their first full length solo show to the Edinburgh Festival, a major step in a comedian’s development.
Our partnership network
In 2012, we brought together our corporate partners as the Corporate Advisory Group. Today, our network of private sector supporters and partners is much wider, and even more central to our work. Take a look at the ways your company can become a member of our partner network and can commit to helping us move towards gender equality in the UK and abroad.
