Since 2008, when the Kering Group first established its Foundation to combat violence against women, supporting innovative social entrepreneurs has been a central focus of our Foundation’s actions.
In this unprecedented Coronavirus pandemic of 2020, the UN reported a “horrifying global surge of domestic violence” with the number of women calling helplines as much as doubling in certain countries, while support services found themselves under-resourced, understaffed and overwhelmed.
Today, as the UN calls for the prevention of violence against women to be part of national recovery plans for Coronavirus, the Kering Foundation continues to partner with social entrepreneurs addressing violence in order to make sustained improvements to women’s lives.
This June, the Kering Foundation launches its global community of social entrepreneurs, in partnership with Empow’Her, a specialist in women-led entrepreneurship.
Every social entrepreneur the Kering Foundation has partnered with since 2008 is invited to join the community. The ambition is to create a thriving ecosystem of support and synergies in order to scale up alternative innovative models that help people live safer.
