Ukrainian Institute joins
the #HeForShe movement
Ukrainian Institute has joined the global movement
for gender equality #HeForShe, which was launched
by the United Nations in 2014.
The UN Women's #HeForShe Movement is a global solidarity campaign in support of gender equality, in which men and boys partake as agents of change against stereotypes and behaviours. Since the launch of the campaign, introduced by the UN Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon and the Ambassador of Goodwill
Emma Watson, heads of state, leading scholars,
heads of global corporations, athletes and artists
who share the philosophy of gender equality
have joined the initiative.

"We believe in the value of diversity, equality and non-discrimination on any grounds. We believe that diversity is our strength, not our weakness", Volodymyr Sheiko,
Director of the Ukrainian Institute, expressed
the opinion of the Institute's team.
