#ShesGotThis is a non-profit, youth-led organization founded in 2015, addressing unconscious bias and gender stereotypes. With humor and honesty our mission is to tackle the institutionalized gender discrimination that is hard to identify, but still happens on a daily basis and has significant implications for society and individuals alike.
We have launched two successful campaigns in Norway and one in Sweden. Our most recent campaign in Norway August 22-25, targeted unconscious gender bias in the workplace. The mobilisation within the workplace was overwhelming, engaging both men and women in the conversation. Our cohort of more than 40 ambassadors included a range of high profile politicians, CEOs and influencers (including former Prime Minister Gro Harlem Brundtland, Minister of Trade and Industry Monica Mæland, Managing Partner in McKinsey Martin Bech Holte and CEO of DNB Rune Bjerke). More than 20 of the largest companies in Norway arranged #ShesGotThis events during the campaign week to raise awareness on unconscious gender bias. The campaign, digital by nature, achieved massive attention and reach through our social media channels, primarily Instagram and Facebook. During the campaign week we reached 450.000 through our facebook page alone, and the campaign was covered by all the main media channels before, during and after the campaign-week.
LAUNCH #SHESGOTTHIS IN YOUR COUNTRY
Due to its massive success, we want to empower people globally to “copy, paste” the campaign and roll it out in their countries. We have created a complete toolkit with everything you need ranging from design profile to copy to advice on funding and press. Sweden, Iceland, London and Finland are already working on local launches and we welcome anyone interested in doing the same to contact us using the form below so we can help get you started.
IT’S NICE TO PICK UP THE CHECK. ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU CHOOSE TO.
In Norway, one of the world’s most gender equal countries, we’ve considerably come far when it comes to true gender equality. But not all discriminating behaviours are obvious. Women are still mistaken to be assistants as opposed to leaders, and mothers are more often than not having to sacrifice work when kids are sick. 15 times as many women than men work part time to ensure family logistics work out.
These are all things women are expected to sacrifice.
So what’s expected from men? Well… that they pick up the check at restaurants and bars every so often.
IS THAT REALLY FAIR?
As a first step towards a more equal society, we encourage one week where women get the chance to balance the inequality- by picking up the check. In return, guys join the conversation.
DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO TREAT?
