Established in July 2020 in Milan, Italy, Generation Female is an non-profit international association set up to empower and support women leaders across the globe in their personal and professional capacities, through:
– flagship events and conferences such as the Generation Female Global Summit,
as well as educational content (Webinars, Online talks, Generation Change series),
– providing services to support companies in Sustainability, DEI, Gender Equality certification and
– the establishment of a global community.
President of Generation Female Anna Shpak explained, “being a woman leader, entrepreneur and mother myself, helping women to thrive and find fulfilment has always been something I am very passionate about. In my work coaching women leaders and advising companies on talent training and development, it quickly became apparent to me that there was a critical need for a larger platform to support and empower women by building up their skills, confidence and connections. The Generation Female movement was thus created to fill this gap and address the needs of women leaders.”
Through our projects and platform, Generation Female strives to create awareness of the gender burden shouldered by women, promote gender inclusiveness and equity, as well as combat gender-based discrimination in civil society and across different professions.
Rise Against Hunger is an international no profit organization driven by the vision of a world without hunger. Our mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable and creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources to end hunger. We’re on the road to end hunger by 2030, aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Goal #2 of Zero Hunger. Our organization’s approach to ending hunger centers on mobilizing a global network of hunger champions. Rise Against Hunger meal packaging volunteers produce millions of nutritious meals annually that are then distributed to partners in countries around the world. Since 2005, our volunteer groups have packaged over 500 million meals, and each year we engage hundreds of thousands of volunteers globally. We rely on groups of any size in locations across the world to package our meals. Those partners are best able to address the causes and effects of hunger based on their local presence and expertise. From the implementation of sustainable community development projects to our meal packaging program that harnesses the passion of local volunteers, we strive to make an impact on hunger by building resilience, self-sufficiency and empowerment in communities worldwide.
