G100: Group of 100 Global Women Leaders

G100 Vision: To create an equal, progressive & inclusive environment for women worldwide. 

G100 Mission: To provide the thought leadership on what needs to be done for inclusivity, safety, economic & social empowerment of women globally, addressing genders gaps and achieving gender parity within this decade. 

There are 100 G100 Wings and each wing has its own Vision Statement as well in addition to the overall G100 Vision.

What is G100? 

G100 is an empowered group of 100 women leaders from across the world, in 100 diverse sectors, supported by 100 eminent He for She champions, for powerful advocacy, awareness & impact across governments and global organisations for a gender equal future. G100 is an action + think tank with a global, cross-cultural, intersectional and intentional perspective toward peace, parity and prosperity for all.

G100 comprises a league of luminaries of eminence and excellence including Nobel Laureates, former Heads of States, Ministers, Businesswomen, Philanthropists, Investors, Entrepreneurs, Corporate and Community Leaders – a powerful club and group of women leaders and achievers from all walks of life who wish to give back and move us all forward as architects of the future.

G100 is supported by The Denim Club : Group of 100 He-for-She Champions globally, comprising leaders and luminaries from the business, corporate and political domains, each leading a sector of influence and having their companies and institutions in support of gender parity and equality. They will advocate for gender equity and balance, mitigate barriers to women’s leadership, commit to women’s greater C-suite representation, and fuel funding for female founders.

G100 consists of 100 wings/sectors, led by 100 Global Chairs respectively, who further nominate 100 country chairs in 100 countries for global reach and impact.

Country chairs further foster a network of state/region/city chairs with communities of 100 women members.

G100 Secretariats: New Delhi, Geneva, New York

In addition to the founding G100 Secretariat in New Delhi, G100 and each G100 wing will be further represented to the UN in Geneva/New York first by the G100 Global Chair, and then by its G100 Sherpa for that wing to help them with coordination and meetings.

If the G100 Global chair wishes, the Switzerland country chair for each G100 wing can officiate as the G100 Sherpa (Geneva). It can be done likewise for UN in New York – the USA country chair for each G100 wing can officiate as the G100 Sherpa (New York). Sherpa is also used by G7 and G20 as a coordinator for them, so it’s a word that is understood and will have traction with the UN. 

The G100 Secretariats will also from time to time collate the policy recommendations in a consolidated document for all the wings of the G100 and present it to the UN/G7/G20 and other global groups and international entities from time to time. 

Each Global Chair leads and represents the dreams and aspirations of 35 million women, both as an action group and a think tank. The far-reaching impact will energise a million women by 2022, and 5 million by 2025.

Call to Action: Each G100 Chair nominates 100 Country Chairs across 100 countries in that sector over 20 months (5-6 per month, till December 2022.) The G100 Global Chairs will evolve policy suggestions based on the actions and workings globally and present policy recommendations to governments and multilateral institutions worldwide.

G100 Denim Club

G100 is also supported by The Denim Club : Group of 100 He-for-She Champions globally, comprising leaders and luminaries from the business, corporate and political domains, each leading a sector of influence and having their companies and institutions in support of gender parity and equality. They will advocate for gender equity and balance, mitigate barriers to women’s leadership, commit to women’s greater C-suite representation, and fuel funding for female founders.

Why ‘Denim’ ? Because it’s symbolic of our common ground. While men may be from Mars and women from Venus; and while girls may grow with pink and boys with blue, denim belongs to all of us equally as a place of comfort for cool and candid conversations. The sturdy denim stands for the solid dialogue between genders and the strength of solidarity that we aspire for. Together we can co-create a better, balanced world for All.

G100 Impact

By the global leadership of the G100 Global Chairs, along with their denim partners, and the inclusive insights fostered from the cross-continental and intersectional networks enabled of the country, state and city chairs sisters in the respective wings/sectors across the world, the G100 will gather a rich repository of expertise and experience with global and grassroots engagement – toward co-creating with the central Secretariat, a holistic Vision Document for presenting policy suggestions and recommendations to multilateral institutions like the UN, global groups as the G7, G20, and to governments globally. Along with it will be a 100 days event on WEF TV for massive global outreach. 

Why G100 ? 

Because we are not waiting a 100 hundred years for gender parity.

With collaboration and co-creation, we are committed to join our forces and strengths, globally and at grassroots, for a better world – defining, designing and determining a new future for ourselves with equity, equal opportunity, inclusion and economic empowerment of women, and of all, through the inclusive agency of women, supported by men champions.

We are co-creating a bold and beautiful model of working together in shared vision and aligned actions with gender respect, balance and parity. Our stellar example of solidarity is a shining testimony to the power of women and men walking together in purpose and mutual empowerment for the greater good of a more sustainable, balanced, progressive and peaceful world for all.

Indeed, we do not have to wait for a 100 years for gender parity. It can happen in this decade itself with our shared vision and collective action. The thought leadership and empowered actions by the G100 is a historic opportunity to represent and manifest the dreams and aspirations of millions of women. 

Together, we will unite and amplify the collective voice and vision of women and men worldwide for our parity and progress in the full spirit and spectrum of gender equality, human fulfilment and sustainable development.
