The Logo: Significance

The logo forms the alphabet “e” which represents Equality and Equity. The parallel strokes reflect collective action by Governments, industry and institutions enabling women to achieve their economic potential, globally. The Tricolours symbolize the values of the Alliance – saffron for strength and courage, white for truth and green for growth. The red dot denotes prosperity. The logo draws inspiration from Lord Ganesh who symbolises intellect, wisdom and understanding.

Our foundation is proud to be a partner in this unique effort to deliver equitable development by putting women’s economic power, health and education at the center”.

“The launch of the ‘Alliance for Global Good – Gender Equity and Equality’ at Davos is a purposeful initiative by India. To have both the Union Minister and Mr. Bill Gates at the unveiling of the logo and website of the Alliance is an indication of their unparalleled support and commitment to women-led development across the globe.
