UN Women’s HeForShe Movement launched globally in 2014 by Emma Watson and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon as a solidarity campaign for men to stand with women for equality and human rights.

Now, as UN Women UK are looking to launch HeForShe 2.0 in the UK, the conversation has rightly moved on: from how men as allies support women, to how we create positive masculinities and tackle the root causes of many of the challenges women face, from inequality in the workplace to sexual harassment.

This session is a call to all organisations to play their role in HeForShe 2.0, and bring men, women and all genders together, to commit to a more equal future.
