Overnight on the eve of International Women’s Day 2017, we placed Fearless Girl in New York’s financial district to ignite a conversation about the importance of gender diversity in corporate leadership.
Since the launch of our Fearless Girl campaign in 2017:
companies were identified for not having a woman on their board
companies of those identified have added a female director
more companies have committed to adding a female director in the near term
In March 2020, we celebrated Fearless Girl's third anniversary and International Women's Day by creating a “living wall” to symbolize the importance of continuing to grow the number of women in leadership.
Fearless Girl moved from her original location in December 2018 and is now installed in front of the New York Stock Exchange, where she can continue to stand as a symbol of the power and potential of women in leadership.
