Since its launch in 2013, Chime for Change has already raised more than $17 million thanks to the initiative of its co-founders, Salma Hayek Pinault and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter, supported by a collective of partner organisations, including Hearst Magazines, the Kering Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among others. The money is earmarked to help projects around the world that promote women's independence, girls' education and combat gender discrimination.
The next summit will see a range of business leaders, activists, artists, entertainment stars, sports and cultural figures come together around the theme of gender equality to present multiple initiatives (debates, field projects, documentaries, artistic projects, etc.) designed to change mentalities and create a collective spirit of solidarity. The 2022 edition will bring together, among others, Amandla Stenberg, a non-binary actress who has played in blockbusters such as Hunger Games, Darkest Minds, and in the moving The Hate U Give, adapted from the best seller by Angela Thomas and acclaimed by the critics.
Very committed to feminist and LGBT causes, Stenberg was awarded the "Feminist of the Year" prize in 2015 by the Ms. Foundation For Women. She will be joined in this edition by director Janizca Bravo, activist Tarana Burke, founder of the MeToo Movement against sexual harassment and violence, and Dolores Huerta, a civil rights icon in America, who has already been rewarded by Barack Obama for her commitment to and fight for women's rights.
The summit will be chaired by Symone D. Sanders, advisor and spokesperson for the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris. The 2022 edition will take place at Barnard College in New York Among the topics likely to be discussed this year are the impact of the Taliban government on women and girls in Afghanistan, the commitment of young climate activists, the effects of the crisis in Ukraine, and the Green Wave movement in South America, which has brought thousands of women into the streets, particularly in Argentina, to legalise abortion and change legislation in favour of women's freedom of choice.

The famous British media Time has selected the most powerful companies in five categories: titans, leaders, innovators, pioneers and disruptors. Unsurprisingly, all the GAFAs are at the top of the list, as well as tech giants like Sony. It is therefore a surprise to see in this ranking the fashion house Balenciaga, defined as the symbol of French luxury.
