Economy & Me: How Equality Starts with Us

September 20, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT

There is no question that women experience greater wealth disparities than men. A 2015 report from the McKinsey Global Institute found that advancing women’s equality can add $12 trillion to the global economy by 2025. So, why does there continue to be such a significant gap between men and women in areas like pay, leadership roles, and access to education?

Economic equality is certainly an uphill climb. Women experience higher rates of poverty than men, but we know that if women—who make up half the world’s population—do not achieve their full economic potential, our global economy will suffer.

While we can’t tackle every aspect of wealth disparity, we can provide women with various perspectives from field experts, including researchers, elected officials, and women working directly to boost women’s financial status, to help women feel confident about advocating for their financial future personally and for their community.

Join She Should Run as we uncover how women can address economic inequality in their own lives and in their communities.

In order to have a multiplier effect on gender equality, She Should Run underpins its programming strategy on five issues poised to impact women and girls the most over the long term. As cross-referenced by YWCA and UN Women and regularly cited by Gen Z women from all political parties, those issues include the Economy, Climate Change, Reproductive Health, Racism, and Gun Violence.
