SDGs and Her

In 2015, all 193 United Nations member countries signed on to 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to "create the future we want in 2030."

SDGs&Her is an online competition for women entrepreneurs to showcase how they are supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through their business operations. The objectives of the initiative are to:

  • recognize women implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including women business owners of microenterprises;
  • increase knowledge about the SDGs and their potential impacts on women among non-traditional audiences; and
  • collaborate with private sector partners on all SDGs, but SDG5 in particular; to share best practices and innovative ideas.

Eligibility: The competition is open to women who own and/or lead microenterprises (1-9 employees; under USD $10,000 loan eligibility OR annual sales under $100,000).

To Enter: Applicants complete a short online template, describing their work and linking their initiative/product to 1 or more SDGs.

Judging: Entries will be screened by a university partner and then judged by an expert panel. Judges will determine the winners based on the impact on the SDGs, vision and purpose, and clarity of the entries.

Prizes: The top winners will be recognized in September, 2018 at an event on the margins of the 2018 UN General Assembly High-Level Week in New York. The stories of the winning women entrepreneur (and many other notable entries) will be shared through partners’ social media and websites.


Deadline: June 30, 2018.
