How Mars is Amplifying the Voices of Women

By VICTORIA MARS, former Mars chairman

It will take the next 136 years to achieve women’s equality worldwide, according to the World Economic Forum. But what if women everywhere were heard, listened to, and we all collectively took action to change that? At Mars, that's the only path forward we see – and what led us to launch #HereToBeHeard, a groundbreaking global listening study that asked over 10,000 women, "What needs to change for more women to reach their full potential?" Join us to listen, learn, and do more.
