Bridging the Gender Equity Gap: The Alliance for Global Good



India’s Pioneering Role in Gender Equity

India’s presidency at the G-20 marked a significant step towards gender equity with the New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration emphasizing inclusion and socio-economic empowerment. The World Economic Forum in January further highlighted India’s commitment through the launch of the ‘Alliance for Global Good – Gender Equity and Equality’. This initiative showcases India’s central role in promoting gender equity on a global stage, transitioning equity and equality from buzzwords to actionable agendas.

Government Initiatives for Women’s Empowerment

For over a decade, India has focused on mainstreaming gender equality, with notable steps such as the Women’s Reservation Bill, which reserves a third of seats in Parliament and State Assemblies for women. The gender budget allocation of nearly $27 billion in 2023-24 underlines the government’s commitment to women-led development. The increase in female labor force participation and higher education enrolment, especially in STEM fields, reflects India’s progress in empowering women.

Global Recognition and Contributions

India’s initiatives, ranging from space exploration to entrepreneurship, have gained international recognition, drawing attention at the World Economic Forum in Davos. The Alliance, supported by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, aims to drive global action towards women empowerment, leveraging India’s success as a model for worldwide implementation.

Opportunities for Global Collaboration

The Alliance presents an opportunity for industries worldwide to share successful practices, invest in scalable programs, and collaborate on inclusive development. It encourages a global dialogue on increasing women’s engagement and leadership in the economy through better access to healthcare, education, and economic opportunities.

India’s Vision for a Unified Global Future

India’s philosophy of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam – One Earth, One Family, One Future’ guides the Alliance’s mission, aiming to address gender-related issues comprehensively. This initiative not only highlights India’s leadership but also its commitment to fostering a global community dedicated to gender equity and equality.
