The She-Ecosystem

Time to witness some glass ceilings shatter!

The She-Ecosystem is a platform dedicated to Diversity, Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women.

For a more equal, fair and just world, women - half the world's population - need to be involved in all aspects of societies (as she chooses).  But the 3 main areas where massive impacts can be made, are with more women in: Entrepreneurship, in STEM, & in Politics.

Hence, at The She-Ecosystem, the 3 main fields of focus are:

  • She-Entrepreneurs

  • She-STEMs (Including: She-Startups - New: She-Space!)

  • She-Governs

'Merriam-Webster' announced that the 'Word of the Year' 2017 is Feminism.

The definition reads as such: “the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes” and “organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests.”
