A new study by Bloomberg Economics found that women’s education and employment converging with that of men would add  $20 trillion to global GDP by 2050.

The One Question Foundation empowers young girls and women from underrepresented backgrounds; socio-economically or culturally, to be part of the conversation in society, one question at a time. 

Research shows that girls and women from underrepresented backgrounds are not offered the same opportunities in society, economically, politically or culturally. Often, due to a lack of financial means, familial support, or the ability to relate to the education system, girls and women are not equipped with the same skills set, confidence or network to ensure their voices are heard. To ask questions and challenge the status quo. 

Our foundation invites girls between the ages of 16-25 to join a 6-month programme asking and answering a single question in seven modules, including, economics, politics, media, environmentalism, cultural studies, the art of a question and confidence and emotional intelligence. Each student will be supported by the One Question community and on successful completion will be granted a paid internship or work experience with one of our corporate partners.
