Fearless Girl to inspire Leadership around Climate Change

Sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by
State Street Global Advisors

She is one of the planet’s most inspiring and recognisable figures. And now Fearless Girl is making her first visit to Ireland, as an exciting highlight of the inaugural Climate Week Programme in November.

Sustainable Nation Ireland is delighted to have partnered with State Street Global Advisors to bring its Fearless Girl worldwide phenomenon to Ireland as we showcase female leadership, gender diversity and the worldwide sustainability agenda.

Fearless Girl first appeared in New York in 2017 to mark International Women’s Day, and to promote the importance of increasing the number of women on corporate boards. State Street Global Advisors commissioned Kristen Visbal to make the now iconic sculpture.

November’s Climate Week aims to inspire businesses to adopt a more proactive approach to securing a sustainable future and tackle climate change. The appearance of Fearless Girl at key events during the week will be the highlight of the Year of Sustainable Business 2018.

The Fearless Girl statue, visiting Ireland for the first time, will serve as a reminder that taking an active approach to a challenge can make a lasting difference. Fearless Girl will help promote Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) best practiceduring Climate Week. Strong ESG systems embedded within corporate culture both improves company performance and promotes long-term sustainable returns for investors

“Fearless Girl is an excellent visual reinforcement of the attributes we need to deal with the scale of the task we are facing in securing a sustainable future, ‘ says Stephen Nolan, CEO of Sustainable Nation Ireland. “We are thrilled that State Street Global Advisors is supporting our inaugural Climate Week by bringing Fearless Girl to Ireland.”

State Street Global Advisors is one of the biggest asset managers globally with $2.8 trillion in assets under management. It employs more than 2,500 people in Ireland with offices in Dublin, Drogheda, Kilkenny and Naas.
