About

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 March 8th 2015. Today the SHE Conference is the biggest gender equality in Europe. CEO Heidi Aven has since 2014 made SHE Community into an organization that also includes she SHE Index, powered by EY – that measures the actual gender balances in several of Norway’s biggest companies. 

What we want to accomplish.

Our vision is to be a global connection point to inspire tangible, measurable progress in society that contributes to closing the gender economic gap.

How do we effect change?

We are aligned to the sustainable development goals of increasing gender equality, reducing inequalities, promoting decent work and economic growth through worthwhile partnerships.

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 March 8th 2015. Today the SHE Conference is the biggest gender equality in Europe. CEO Heidi Aven has since 2014 made SHE Community into an organization that also includes she SHE Index, powered by EY – that measures the actual gender balances in several of Norway’s biggest companies. The Index was in 2020 launched in Sweden, and together with EY, 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 CEO’s 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 boarders.
