Thanks for posting this @MaddieJ!

 

An organization that comes to mind for me, is UN Women. whose purpose is to support global standards for achieving gender equality -- They work with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, and programs/services to ensure that standards are effectively implemented and truly benefit women and girls worldwide. 

 

UN Women initiated the  HeForShe movement, inviting people around the world to stand together to create a bold, visible force for gender equality.


I also wanted to point out Twitter's effort to publicize their initiatives to build a diverse and inclusive workforce: Building a more inclusive Twitter in 2016

 

While I haven't seen an updated version of this for 2017, and just recently discovered their VP of Diversity and Inclusion (who published the blog) is no longer with the company, I still think it's a good example of a company trying to do the right thing. I'd love to see more businesses openly share EEO reports and progress towards diversity goals. It's pretty inspiring stuff ☺️
