LinkedIn highlights the importance of female role models

 July 04, 2022

Linkedin is an official sponsor of the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, a tournament that is set to be the largest women’s European sporting event in history.

LinkedIn is committed to supporting women in achieving their goals and is celebrating trailblazing women, both on and off the pitch by highlighting the importance of female role models - and hopes to spark conversations that can help drive a more equitable world of work.

LinkedIn believes that talent is equally distributed, but opportunity is not. The company realizes its responsibility both on its platform and in its company to help create a more equitable and inclusive world of work.

LinkedIn's vision is to create economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. As it realizes diversity, inclusion, and belonging for its employees, members, and customers, LinkedIn gets closer to achieving that vision.
