Facebook will launch #SheForVietnam - a programme for Vietnamese women who are creating miracles every day on social networks on March 6 in efforts to affirm its commitment to supporting Vietnamese women in the digital era.

#SheForVietnam is designed to connect and inspire women's communities, encourage and empower them to dream big and live life to the fullest.

The programme’s first pillar - #SheInspires is an online roundtable to honour and inspire women that stand up to help others and spread positive energy. There will be some popular faces in the event, those represent millions of other Vietnamese women creating magic every day thanks to the power of social networks: singer Thuy Tien, Miss Universe Vietnam H'Hen Nie, actress Sam, social activist Chung Vu Thanh Uyen - Mina Chung, CEO of Ru9 Company Limited Dang Thuy Trang, Founder - CEO of the Women's Initiative for Startups and Entrepreneurship (WISE) Tu Thu Hien and Nam Nguyen, Entertainment Partnership Lead, Vietnam, Facebook.

“In Viet Nam, women contributed 62 per cent of the total amount fundraised on Facebook in 2020. We have seen the positive impact that women have been able to create in their communities by sharing their voices across our platform, which becomes our motivation to continue our commitment to support women in Viet Nam. We hope #SheForVietnam can empower Vietnamese women to pursue their dreams and improve their life’s value, making more impact for the community,” said Nam Nguyen, Entertainment Partnership Lead, Vietnam, Facebook.

Hosted by Actress Sam, the event will unveil stories about how those successful women leverage the power of a social network to inspire people, especially the women's community. The live roundtable #SheInspires will take place at 20:00 on March 6, 2021 on Facebook app Vietnam and Yeah1’s page system as well as a series of other popular pages from Dat Viet, Dien Quan, MCV, YAN, Multimedia, Orion Media, BHD, Unimedia, BH Media and POPs.

“I am very honoured to be a part of Facebook's #SheInspires programme. Through this talk show, I had a chance to listen to the stories of women who could be both successful entrepreneurs and loving housewives, and an opportunity to bring my own stories to inspire women all over Viet Nam. I believe that if all of us join hands together with the support of social networks, our efforts will help spread women's voices to the community,” said H'Hen Nie.

Women's development and gender equality have always been Facebook's top priorities for the past few years. In Viet Nam, Facebook has implemented many initiatives to support women in economic development, especially #SheMeansBusiness programme. This year celebrates the 5th anniversary of this programme, with more than 20,700 businesswomen in more than 50 cities trained through the programme's online and offline workshops. #SheMeansBusiness has helped equip aspiring and established women entrepreneurs with the knowledge, skills, connections and technology required to build and grow businesses in the digital age. — VNS
