HeForShe and International Women’s Day
Barclays is one of 10 corporate organisations (and the only financial services institution) to be invited by the UN to be a HeForShe ‘IMPACT 10x10x10 Champion’. HeForShe’s goal is to engage men and boys as agents of change for the achievement of gender equality and women's rights, by encouraging them to take action against negative inequalities faced by women and girls. During our two years of celebrating HeForShe at Barclays, during International Women’s Day, we have collected an impressive 5000+ colleague commitments and held keynote events in New York, London, Singapore, and Johannesburg. HeForShe aligns with work we are doing to bolster female leadership within the bank and our senior leaders including Jes Staley (CEO) and John McFarlane (Chairman) are both HeForShe Champions.
