Earlier this week, in support of the United Nations More Powerful Together Campaign, AGL Energy lit only half of the exterior lights of their 699 Bourke Street office to symbolise the power lost when the world excludes half its population – women.

Melissa Reynolds, AGL Equality’s Executive sponsor said, that being part of the United Nation’s global campaign to inspire advocates for gender equality, is strongly linked to the work AGL Equality is already undertaking.

“Being part of this campaign demonstrates our commitment to equality not only to our people, but also to the community.”

The More Powerful Together campaign is part of the United Nation’s HeForShe campaign which was launched by actress Emma Watson in 2014. The HeForShe aims to inspire as many men and boys as possible to be advocates for gender equality.
