Staying the Course Amid COVID-19: 2021 Progress Report

The 2021 Progress Report is based on self-reporting from commitment-makers on their progress in the last years, and documents that all companies and business organizations stand by their commitments – even though for most, the timetable and path for achieving their goals has lengthened and taken new turns in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies report adapting plans and programming to reflect the new global reality, and for many, the structures and personnel used for their health education and empowerment trainings could be repurposed for the pandemic response, from workplace vaccinations, to increased focus on preventing gender-based violence and supporting mental health, to piloting and expanding telemedicine and virtual outreach.
