The Women Deliver 2019 Conference is just around the corner!
We hope that you and your organization will join us in June at the largest conference in the world on gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women. Under the theme “Power. Progress. Change.” we will bring together more than 6,000 world leaders, government officials, leaders from the private sector, foundations, and civil society, celebrities, academics, advocates, activists, and journalists with the drive to accelerate progress for girls and women everywhere — including an unprecedented amount of young people.
Here are ten reasons why advocates worldwide cannot miss this opportunity!
