I can’t deny the fact I love the Spice Girls. Who can really deny the excitement of hearing Wannabe come on the radio? It’s my karaoke song. If I’m singing, it’s going to be with Scary, Sporty, Baby, Ginger and Posh.
Earlier this year, our colleagues at Project Everyone in the UK released an incredible remake of the hit single Wannabe.

In response to this video, we asked people from all over the world to tell world leaders what they really really wanted for girls and women by 2030.
We had some awesome responses. You can see some below.
I had two things I really really wanted to see by 2030.
The first was for people to stop judging my ability to do my job on my gender and my obsession with the colour pink.
The second was to ensure we have female representation in senior positions.
The key here is that I don’t want this to be about arbitrary targets. Yes, 50/50 representation is a great starting point to encourage leaders to ensure they are providing adequate mentorship and support to competent females within their organisations. But by 2030, #WhatIReallyReallyWant for girls and women is for there to be a culture of equal representation in the workplace. Because businesses definitely see a return on investment when it comes to this.
Tell us what you really really want now by taking a picture, posting it on social media and using the hashtag #WhatIReallyReallyWant!
