Alliance magazine has partnered with IIX Foundation and its annual flagship programme, SHE IS MORE 2022, to celebrate women and youth through art. This global art competition invites young artists across the world to share their voices through personal pieces of visual art that celebrate the value of inclusivity. The theme, Resilience, will shine a light on and celebrate untold stories of human resilience across the world.
IIX Foundation’s SHE IS MORE supports women across all stages of their journey to empowerment to transform themselves, their futures and to create a gender equal world.
Women are one of the key drivers of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). By putting women at the forefront of capital markets, the world can move towards a more inclusive and climate-resilient future for all. However, this valuable segment of society is also the most vulnerable as many lack the necessary resources and even face adversities in their livelihoods to fully unlock their potential.
Today’s children are tomorrow’s leaders. Children are the ones who have the power to change the world they want to live in for themselves and for the community that surrounds them. Considering that their behavior and perception of the world is shaped at a young age, educating them on social issues at a young age is pivotal in their development and improvement of their lives globally.
SHE IS MORE 2022 is a global initiative to celebrate the value of women through art and improve their livelihoods. This will not be made possible without the support of our charitable partners who have rallied to amplify this mission to greater heights. With that, we’re proud to announce the renowned brands who have extended their support in the name of gender-equality and sustainable development.
Let’s get to know more about these partners!
