Clé de Peau Beauté for UNICEF

Clé de Peau Beauté is
supporting UNICEF's effort
to empower
6.5 million girls
globally with skills for the
future through Education,
Employment, and
Empowerment programs.

There are roughly 600 million adolescent
girls in our world,
many of them
- particularly those living in developing
countries - are disproportionately excluded
from critical education and skills-building
opportunities, especially in Science,
Technology, Engineering
and Mathematics (STEM) field.
This becomes particularly significant when
over 90 percent of jobs worldwide have a
digital component
and without increased
digital adoption and use, adolescent
girls will have fewer employment
opportunities
and face additional barriers
to be competitive in 21st century jobs.*

Clé de Peau Beauté’s multi-year partnership
with UNICEF aims to improve girls’ access
to STEM education
and alternative learning
to help them unlock the power of their
potential through knowledge.

The global pandemic has disrupted the lives
and education of millions of girls around
the world
and has highlighted the urgency
for digital inclusion through our increased
reliance on technology.
The future will demand a greater focus on
STEM-related expertise for the next
generation of girls to succeed
and thrive
– which is why we’re proud to take
meaningful action and deliver tangible
results by championing
STEM-related
Education and training through supporting
UNICEF’s Gender Equality Program.

“Every girl deserves to grow up in a world of opportunity and to live a fulfilled life. But millions of girls around the world are denied that opportunity – without access to school or to resources – denied the chance to participate equally in society. The pandemic has highlighted the urgency for inclusion and the need for girls to be central to change their lives and contribute to their communities. With support from our partnership with Clé de Peau Beauté, UNICEF is investing in skills-building initiatives in STEM, digital technologies and social entrepreneurship. UNICEF supports efforts that make sure girls lead empowered lives, equipped with the right resources and opportunities. The world’s 600 million adolescent girls can become the largest generation of female leaders the world has ever seen.”
