Goal #5: Gender Equity

Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.

myTurn.com supports the power of gender equality and the immense potential that can be unlocked when women are given equal opportunities. Here’s how our platform is helping move toward this vital goal:

  1. Leading by Example: With a co-founder who is a woman and a workforce where half of the staff, including those in management and technical roles, are women, myTurn.com showcases the strength and capabilities of women in leadership and technical domains.
  2. Supporting Female-led Organizations: Beyond our internal practices, we extend our support to dozens of organizations that are either led or co-led by female leaders. This not only amplifies the voices of women in leadership roles but also fosters a culture of inclusivity and empowerment.
  3. Serving a Diverse Community: The impact of myTurn.com is widespread, and our community-focused customers serve a diverse audience. Remarkably, even in spaces like “tool libraries,” which might traditionally be perceived as male-dominated, half of the beneficiaries are women. This highlights the breaking down of gender barriers and stereotypes.
  4. Empowering Women Entrepreneurs: Women around the world are leveraging myTurn.com to kickstart businesses and NGOs that align with and promote the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. By providing the tools and platform for these endeavors, myTurn.com is directly empowering women to be changemakers and leaders in the global sustainability movement.

Through its practices, partnerships, and the communities it serves, myTurn.com is not just supporting the vision of Goal #5; it’s actively living it. We’re not just advocating for gender equality; we’re embodying it, one shared tool and opportunity at a time.
