HeForShe IMPACT 10x10x10
In May 2015, President Hamdullahpur accepted an invitation from the UN Women’s HeForShe campaign for the University of Waterloo to participate in their IMPACT 10x10x10 framework alongside governments, leading universities, and global businesses.
As part of this framework, we will:
- Boost female student participation in STEM outreach experiences and academic careers to build the pipeline of future female leaders in traditionally male dominated disciplines
- Enhance female faculty representation to improve the campus environment today and drive towards parity in the future
- Attract and advance female leaders into senior academic and administrative university positions

We have much to be proud of at the University of Waterloo. Two key areas that we continue to show incredible leadership in is our commitment to advancing gender equity on our campus, and our capabilities around entrepreneurship and moving ideas from invention to innovation.
