Women's economic opportunity

Since 2005, ExxonMobil and the ExxonMobil Foundation have helped women around the world invest in themselves and their communities.

Moving Women Forward

Women drive economic growth

Research shows that when women have control over their incomes, they invest in the health, education and well-being of their families. They also tend to reach out to propel other women forward, creating a powerful multiplier effect that benefits all of society. At ExxonMobil, we know that when women move forward, the world moves with them. That’s why in 2005, we launched our Women’s Economic Opportunity Initiative — a global effort that helps women fulfill their economic potential and drive economic and social change in their communities.
