HE FOR SHE TURKEY

Launched by United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (UN Women), HeForShe is a solidarity movement that calls on men of all ages to pioneer advocacy of gender equality and women’s rights.

Signatory to “Women’s Empowerment Principles”, the joint text of UN Women and United Nations Global Compact, Koç Holding is listed among the 10 Impact Champions on a global scale as part of the HeForShe campaign run by UN Women.

The main idea behind the campaign is that gender equality is an issue that concerns not just women but the entire society at large and a society that achieves gender equality will serve the interests of both men and women in social, political and economic realms.

KoçSistem continues to carry out activities under the HeForShe campaign. We call on men to represent change for women’s rights and become signatories at www.heforshe.org/tr.
