Promoting change until all are included
Behind gender, background, and titles, we are all human beings. We all have a valuable perspective. And the world is poorer without it. Still, the bulk of our leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs come from the same overrepresented group. SHE was born with a desire to end this lack of balance. To
change what is inexcusably unjust and create opportunities not just for some – but for all of us. And not only because it’s fair. We believe progress will also yield profit.
With equality as the driving force, SHE empowers people to make business fair for everyone. We establish the space, set the agenda, and engage our growing, global community. This is a journey, and we want you to join.
Together, we build the structure to help each other push forward – we promote change until we are all included.
What is SHE?
The story of SHE
SHE Community was founded in 2014 by two enthusiastic women who wanted to do more for the current and coming generations. The first step? Focusing on the current situation and inspiring more women to become leaders and investors.
That step led to SHE Conference on March 8th, 2015. Today the SHE Conference is the biggest gender equality conference in Europe.
CEO Heidi Aven has, since 2014, made SHE Community into an organization that also includes the SHE Index, powered by EY – that measures the actual gender balances in several of Norway’s biggest companies. The Index was 2020 launched in Sweden, and together with EY, the SHE Community will make the Index global.
SHE Community has several programs aimed at creating more equality and diversity. Among these are SHE Leads – a mentor program with some of the most prominent CEOs in Norway, and SHE Invest – a program aimed at teaching women how to invest. The Fall 2020 SHE Community launched SHE Insight, an online magazine dedicated to equality and diversity, and with an online community aimed at creating networks across borders.
