MetLife values innovation and is committed to creating opportunities for everyone, strengthening partnerships that enables MetLife to drive greater impact for women around the world – and one of these partnerships is with the GICC.

Specifically, the GICC focuses on:
- building market awareness of the potential for innovations developed by women that meet the needs of women and girls
- identifying key barriers to women and girl’s advancement in innovation, technology and entrepreneurship
- working collaboratively to identify and take actions to address barriers and needs at an industry-wide level
