CARE Corporate Council

CARE believes that the private sector can play a critical role in accelerating progress toward gender equality. The CARE Corporate Council convenes ambitious companies across sectors to do just that.

Launched in 2019, the CARE Corporate Council works to achieve gender equality through thought-leadership and best practice sharing among members. Leveraging the influence and reach of America’s biggest companies alongside CARE’s experience working with the world’s most vulnerable women and girls, the Council has focused its work on achieving Sustainable Development Goal #5 (Gender Equality).

The Council convenes, on average, every three months, both in-person and virtually, and often features high-profile outside speakers alongside member company representatives.

For more information on the Council, please read the 1-page summary of Council benefits and membership details or contact Sarah Moser, Director of Corporate Thought Leadership, at sarah.moser@care.org.
