We are a “Social Enterprise (Social Business)" which empowers women aiming to create a world where any women can unleash their fullest potential, being and economically and emotionally independent.
It doesn’t matter where you come from. What planet you are from. Color, beliefs, gender, age, appearance, rich or poor, strong or weak, single or married - It’s nothing about that. We humans are all born with our own unique beautiful talents and purposes. We need to be able to unleash our potential to contribute to things, space, time, people, community, creature, environment, earth, or to whatever it may be, to pursue one’s purpose and achieve it in life. SHeStands began with the quest of one woman who struggled to unleash her potential after becoming a mother. “There has got to be a better way.” Today, it is still hard to unleash our true potential. Consequently, we find it hard to discover our “Ikigai.” SHeStands’ vision is not only about women, but about diversity. That is why it is “SHe” (She: Femininity + He: Masculinity = Human). Today, our unconscious bias however tends to limit women’s opportunities. So, we need to break the stereotype and start from empowering women. SHeStands believes that SHe (Human) standing for one another creates positive impact that allows others to unleash one’s true potential. “A women empowerment social enterprise”, SHeStands is rooted in the act of doing social good and giving back. “Humanity” being our core value, the policy is not about competing, but about collaborating with companies, organizations, government, and individuals, that share similar vision, to be more influential to progress gender equality. We are all about building allies to empower women. Together, we shall stand to change the world.
