Embrace Equity

March 18th marks International Women’s Day.

Here at the Friedrich Naumann Foundation we want to see a world where differences are valued and celebrated. Together we can forge women's equality. Collectively we can all #EmbraceEquity.

FNF works with female ambassadors, liberal multipliers, role models and trailblazers from all over Southeast and East Asia.
