how can we create change to develop the next generation of girl leaders?
International Day of the Girl Child (IDG), now in its 10th year, is designed to promote statistics just like this, ensuring we continue to help increase attention on issues that matter to girls amongst governments, policymakers and the general public, and provide more opportunities for girls to have their voices heard on the global stage.
To celebrate IDG and promote positive action, we sat down with our Global Sustainability Leader, Michelle Degenhardt, to better understand how we can contribute to this narrative and foster change in developing the next generation of girl leaders.
A girls’ education reduces the gender gap found in the workplace of many developing countries. In fact, UNESCO found that Pakistani women with a primary education earned 51 percent of what their male counterparts made. This number increased to 70 percent when a woman completed secondary education.
