September 17, 2018

Hawaii Pacific University, Honolulu

#sheinnovates is coming to Hawaii!



As part of UN Women’s innovation strategy to drive industry-wide action in this area, UN Women has created a Global Innovation Coalition for Change (GICC). The GICC is a dynamic partnership between UN Women and key representatives from the private sector, academia and nonprofit institutions focused on developing the innovation market to work better for women and to accelerate the achievement of gender equality and women’s empowerment. Under the GICC the #sheinnovates program was founded, that Ann Rosenberg, SVP & Global Head of SAP Next-Gen is now the Global Lead for, building up community on behalf of the movement.


Specifically, the GICC is focused on the following actions:

  • Build market awareness of the potential for innovations developed by women that meet the needs of women and girls.
  • Identify the key barriers to women and girl’s advancement in innovation, technology and entrepreneurship.
  • Work collaboratively to identify and take actions to address these barriers and needs at an industry-wide level.
