ZEproject is a collaborative initiative that strives to empower diverse gender offering equal opportunity and consideration in the global workforce.

 

Although the pronoun « ze » tends to be thought of as gender neutral (and many people find pronouns to be an important affirmation of identity), a person who goes by « ze » could actually be a man, a woman, both, neither, or something else entirely.

OUR MISSIONS ARE

To bring awareness worldwide
of diverse gender identity

To give an opportunity for diverse gender
to be considered as equal by the society

To create a Worldwide program to encourage companies employing diverse gender.

THE UNITED NATIONS STATEMENTS

 » If we are to achieve faster global progress towards equality for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and intersex people, businesses will not only have to meet their human rights responsibilities, they must become active agents of change «

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

 “Third gender community is as unique and as normal as any other constituent of the modern society but for a variety of reasons they are being deprived of social, economical, financial and legal rights. This marginality is a road block in the holistic development of our society. Let’s resolve now to reinstate the rights and dignity in the larger interest of the humanity.
