The Issues

  • Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights.

    It can include physical, sexual, psychological and economic abuse, and it cuts across boundaries of age, race, culture, wealth and geography.

    It takes place in the home, on the streets, in schools, the workplace, in farm fields, refugee camps, during conflicts and crises. It has many manifestations — from the most universally prevalent forms of domestic and sexual violence, to harmful practices, abuse during pregnancy, so-called honour killings and other types of femicide.

    • “Peers” bring together the individual strengths of localization, specialization, and customization, unlocking the power of the collaborative economy. When excess capacity is harnessed by the platform and diverse peers participate, a completely new dynamic is unleashed
    • .•How focusing on excess capacity transforms the economics of what’s possible and delivers abundance to all •How the new collaboration between the Inc and the Peers enables companies to grow more quickly, learn faster, and deliver smarter products and services •How leveraging the Peers Inc model can address climate change with the necessary speed and scale •How the Peers Inc model can help legacy companies overcome their shortening life cycle by inviting innovation and evolution •Why power parity between the Peers and the Inc is a prerequisite for long-term success •How platforms can be built within the existing financial system or outside of it •What government can do to enhance economic possibility and protect people working in this new decentralized world We all work together and have one workshop in the
