We’re calling on ideas from non-profits and social organizations around the world that are working to advance the economic empowerment of women and girls and create pathways to prosperity, wrote´s President Jacquelline Fuller in a blog. ” will provide USD 25 million in overall funding and Impact Challenge grantees will receive mentoring from Googlers, Ad Grants and additional support to bring their ideas to life.”

She notes that despite all initiatives, “women and men remain on unequal footing — and these inequalities have worsened in the wake of COVID-19. Globally, women are almost two times more likely to lose their jobs as a result of COVID-19.”
