Google: Women's history month 2021
Given the disproportionate economic impact of the pandemic on women, Google is making it easier to search for and support women’s businesses by making the “women-owned business” attribute searchable in English, globally.
And in order to enhance security protections for women, its Advanced Protection Program will partner with UN Women on a 12 month Security Training partnership.
To mark International Women’s Day, Google also announced a $25M Google.org Impact Challenge for Women and Girls, an open call to support organizations across the world, which are helping women and girls access pathways to prosperity.
Selected organizations will receive funding from Google.org, mentoring from Googlers, Ad Grants and additional support to bring their ideas to life. Nonprofit organizations and social enterprises are invited to apply, and grantees will be selected with the support of an entirely female-led expert panel, composed of Google executives, political/policy leaders, activists and influencers.
