The Generation Equality Forum took place in Mexico City in March 2021 and in Paris from 30 June – 2 July 2021. The Forum launched a 5-year action journey to achieve irreversible progress towards equality, founded on a series of concrete, ambitious and transformative actions, including $40 Billion USD of pledged commitments and new investments for gender equality. This landmark effort brought together governments, corporations, civil society, youth activists, and philanthropists from around the world to define and announce ambitious investments and policies. These diverse stakeholders have embarked on a 5-year journey to accelerate gender equality, leadership and opportunity for women and girls in all their diversity worldwide.
