SHE IS TO BE RESPECTED. SHE IS TO BE VALUED. SHE IS TO BE CELEBRATED. BECAUSE SHE IS MORE.
IIX puts women at the center of all of our work and is an advocate for the global recognition of the value of women across all spaces – from financial markets to art canvases – because we know that SHE IS MORE. Join us in celebrating and empowering women globally by supporting our SHE IS MORE Youth Art Competition and the SHE IS MORE Art Exhibition and Opening Night Celebration.
