The United Nations created Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to transform the world by presenting a unified vision to end poverty, reduce inequality and prevent further harm to the planet. We've already seen how Vodacom has contributed to the UN SDG 3 – Good Health and Wellbeing – and the UN SDG 4 – Quality Education. Now take a look at how we have contributed to UN SDG 5: Gender Equality in the 2019 financial year.
There are two key targets for UN SDG 5: Gender Equality. They are:
- to end all forms of discrimination against women and girls everywhere, and
- to ensure women's full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership.
Vodacom aims to provide women with access to life-enhancing services that help to unlock socio-economic opportunities. We also want to ensure inclusivity of women in the workplace.
