On September 20, 2014, UN Women launched HeForShe, one of the largest solidarity movements of the 21st century for the achievement of gender equality. Over the next 12 months from September 2014 to September 2015, the HeForShe campaign intends to mobilize one billion men and boys as advocates and agents of change in ending the persisting inequalities faced by women and girls globally. The premise is that inequality is a human rights issue, the resolution of which will benefit everyone - socially, politically and economically.
The HeForShe campaign’s twelve month implementation phase will be punctured by a large-scale fundraising event on September 26, 2015 at the Barclays Centre in New York City. This celebratory event will bring together gender experts, government officials, senior United Nations officials, civil society organizations, HeForShe celebrity champions and leading performers to raise awareness of gender equality at all time-high.
Based on the above background, UN Women hereby requests Event Production Companies with extensive experience, contacts and a sound track record in the securing of top-tier performance talent, broadcast partners and production of fundraising events to submit a proposal for the provision of event planning and production of the HeForShe Fundraising concert on September 26, 2015 at Barclays Centre in New York City.
