Who Will Make a Global Impact?
She Will.

Together, we can ensure a brighter future for girls, women, and society as a whole.

Given equal economic and educational opportunities, girls and women can make a more significant impact around the globe. They can prosper, lead, and inspire positive change in their families, their communities, and the world. These are the beliefs that drive Intel's programs to empower girls and women around the world.

Working together with a range of partners, Intel is creating innovative new solutions to remove gender-based barriers to education and technology, and to build a future of flourishing opportunity for girls and women.

Intel, with help from 10x10act.org, aims to give girls and women worldwide hope for the future by fostering education, opportunity, and a fair chance.

Why invest in women?

They do 66% of the work

Despite performing 66% of the work in the world and producing 50% of the food, women earn only 10% of the income and own just 1% of the assets.1

GDP rises

When 10% more of its girls go to school, a country’s GDP increases an average of 3%.2

Families strengthen

When girls and women earn income, they typically reinvest a significant portion of their earnings in their families.3
