Gender equality across industries project (GEAI) is funded by the U.S. Consulate General, with the vision to raise public awareness in the "gender equality" issues, which have been existing across many fields and sectors in Vietnam. The project for 2021-2022 has been approved to focus on 4 industries: Press & Media, Healthcare, Retails & Beauty & Education.
Beauty & Fashion has been selected to be our next industry. Gender equality is the 5th goal among UN's 17 sustainable development goals by 2030, and this matter has been long discussed within the Beauty & Fashion industry across the globe. Many reports highlighted that both the fashion world and the beauty sector have less than 30% of women seen on the board and in executive positions (statistics since 2016, with apparel and retail came in second and third). This is considered “ironic” for the fact that this is the industry embodied by women’s faces, “a business that caters largely to women and that’s built on the dollars women spend”. Furthermore, even though there is a common perception that gay male designers are favored in receiving award nominations, publicity, and praise, researchers pointed out that “Gay designers experience both valorization and discrimination from intersections of gender and sexuality.” At GEAI, we do not stop only at women empowerment, but rather focus on gender equality and diversity. It covers any gender minority presenting in a certain industry, regardless if they are men, women, or LGBTQ+. Joining the panel discussion, the audience can hear the diverse voices from the stakeholders, as well as to see a broader picture to the gender equality matter in the Vietnam market for Beauty & Fashion.
