I've just come across an amazing initiative called the Knowledge Gateway for Women's Economic Empowerment. Launched on 23rd September by UN Women and Canada, it aims to provide an online space where women have access to resources, innovation, collaborations and partnerships in order to advance women's economic empowerment.
Their mission is to provide a tool whereby women can make connections with other like-minded females, leading to a cross-collaboration network between young women and girls and experts and professionals. The ultimate goal of the Knowledge Gateway for Women's Economic Empowerment is to 'enhance young women and girl's capacity to drive innovation for a better world'. This cause is one I feel very strongly about and I'm glad that such an initiative exists to make the world a more fruitful, innovative and fair place.
