Are you going?

23 people going



In January we’ll be focussing on SDG 5: Gender Equality.

While some forms of discrimination against women and girls are diminishing, gender inequality continues to hold women back and deprives them of basic rights and opportunities. SDG 5 is about achieving gender quality and empowering all women and girls around the world.

➜ She Matters | She Matters is a social enterprise and recruitment agency with a mission to empower female newcomers to enter the labour market, as well as local employers who are looking for talented and skilled workers. Through their gender-specific programming, they offer them the support they need to build their social and economic capital, boost their self-confidence and become leaders in their homes, businesses and communities.

➜ Equileap | Equileap is a social enterprise aiming to accelerate progress towards gender equality in the workplace, using the power of investments, grants and knowledge. Headquartered in Amsterdam and London, the organisation’s profits are used to support women through social impact projects that tackle the root causes of gender inequality. Equileap believes financial empowerment and involvement in companies’ strategy and vision can provide women with the tools to improve other aspects of their lives.

➜ You! | The event will continue with an interactive process, during which we’ll generate insights for overcoming challenges and accelerating solutions for SDG 5.

Sustainable Development Goals Meetup is a monthly meetup powered by SDG House Residents Impact Hub Amsterdam and C-Change.

The SDG Meetup series provides a continuous engagement opportunity to accelerate solutions per SDG and develop shared knowledge and resources. It is also an accessible collaboration platform for established organisations, impact entrepreneurs, SMEs, institutions and independent professionals who want to learn about and work on the SDGs in an entrepreneurial way.

Each edition focuses on one SDG (i.e. gender equality, climate change). It is an interactive evening event meant to generate new ideas, connections, collaboration and action. At each edition we invite knowledge partners, entrepreneurs, innovators and expert facilitators to co-create an inspiring environment for us.

The learnings of each meetup is also recorded and shared with larger public through a podcast series.

The meetups takes place at Impact Hub Amsterdam located in the SDG House (KIT Royal Tropical Institute) in Amsterdam Oost. SDG House, as a community, houses over 1000+ professionals and 50+ organisations working on or with the SDGs.
