Drawing the Future launched at Davos today

This morning, Our Drawing the Future report was presented to the world’s political and business leaders at Davos.

The international report revealed for the first time that gender stereotypes start at a very young age and that it is a global issue.

The live streamed event from Davos discussed how these stereotypes may be a key reason that so little progress is being made towards gender equality and explored some simple actions that could be taken to bring about much needed change.
