Vision and Goals

Vision 2020 has an inspiring vision for the nation's future:

  • Shared Leadership among women and men – 50-50 in top decision-making in business, government and ultimately all aspects of society – will bring gender equality a giant step closer to reality and make America even better by including all of its brainpower in global competition.
  • Economic Security for women is essential. Not just achieving "pay equity," a persistent problem, but economic parity through the senior years, when the gender gap in retirement income continues.
  • Youth Education will inspire young girls by including in history lessons the achievements of women as well as men, and give young boys an understanding and appreciation of women's contributions through shared leadership. 
  • Women's increased Civic Engagement – by voting and running for office – will help bring about shared leadership in government. Vision 2020 has a goal of 100 percent of eligible women voting in the November 2020 national elections.
