PIMCO Coalition Empowers Women and Girls Worldwide!

Figure Skating in Harlem is one of 12 nonprofit grantees of the The PIMCO Foundation, (PIMCO’s charitable arm), working to empower girls and women around the world through the #WomenForward coalition!

On March 8, this group will call on the global community to commit to investing in the lives of women and girls as part of International Women’s Day!  The #WomenForward partnering groups span from the United States to Rwanda and all work with diverse populations on a host of issues as they tackle the many obstacles preventing gender equality, including deeply ingrained societal behaviors and barriers. Initiatives include facilitating access to education for young women in post-conflict and developing countries; combatting rape culture by empowering survivors; championing girls’ voices by providing mentors; and helping low-income and immigrant women launch new careers and start or scale new businesses.

Although progress has been made toward gender equality, much work remains. Globally, women’s participation in the workforce is unequal to men’s; one in three women still experience physical or sexual violence; and twice as many girls as boys will never start school.
