Women's World 2011 is a global conference to advance women's equality through research, exchange, leadership and action. The 30th anniversary will be held in Ottawa-Gatineau from July 3-7th. Nicole Schwab, co-founder of The Gender Equality Project, a Swiss Foundation committed to creating a world where women and men are equally valued and respected in all aspects of economic, political and social life. Nicole is now launching a Gender Equality label (HR) for Fortune 500 corporations and will be speaking at the conference. Meghan Murphy spoke with her about the project, the glass ceiling, and how we can work towards getting more women into leadership positions globally.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
