Let's Do Something Big Together!
On November 28, we are celebrating Giving Tuesday: a day that encourages people to do good! The movement started in 2012 and has grown to a global level ever since. The goal of Giving Tuesday is to encourage people to donate to charities, and for employers to match their employees’ donations.
Our mission at Women In Identity is to drive the digital identity industry to build solutions with diverse teams to promote universal access which enables civic, social and economic empowerment around the world. In doing so, we aspire to support innovation and the growth of our sector by ensuring that Identity solutions are: built for everyone, by everyone #ForAllByAll.
Your donations will go into our ID Code of Conduct Research fund. The ID Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines aimed at helping the industry close the identity gap. Over 1.1 Billion people worldwide experience financial distress due to identity exclusion. By supporting our mission, you can contribute to making their lives better!
As the world transitions to a digital economy, being able to prove one's identity is of utmost importance. It is the gateway for everyone to access products & services, and it forms the very backbone of social & financial inclusion. At Women in Identity, we want to make sure that every individual is represented in identity solutions. We do this by influencing the identity industry and creating awareness of the importance of diversity. One such exciting initiative is our Code of Conduct project which is aimed at enhancing diversity in the workplace. We have interviewed people in the UK and Ghana to talk about #IdentityExclusion
Our WiD Ambassador Dia Banerji explains why identity matters to her:
Ways to participate?
- Make a donation! There are three ways to donate: donate in GBP, donate in USD or donate through Benevity. WID is also a registered charity on the Benevity Portal. If your company uses this tool for employee donations please login and select Women in Identity as your charity of choice.
- Match donations! If you are planning to make a monetary donation to WID, and your organisation participates in donation matching, reach out to your network and offer to match any donations made to WiD up to your desired donation amount. This way the donation to WiD is tripled (your network + your donation + your company matching).
- Express yourself! If you donate to WiD on Giving Tuesday, use our “I give because…” sticker and share it on your social media. Don't forget to tag us @womeninid so we can repost your stickers!
- Share our mission! Every Tuesday leading up to Giving Tuesday WID will share posts across our social channels. Please like and share with your networks with the hashtags #GivingTuesday, #GivingtoWID, #WomenInIdentity, #ForAllByAll. Add something about how you will be giving back in the coming days - with your time, voice, or funds.
