Women Deliver, is a global advocacy organization for gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.
The team brings together Women Deliver staff (meet them here!) and youth advocates from their Young Leaders Program, an initiative that trains, elevates, and empowers young advocates from across the globe. When they are not working to build capacity, share solutions, and forge partnerships for progress on gender equality, you can find them sharpening their soccer skills to win the Global Goals World Cup!
Team Captain Lauren Smits explains their work:
We know that when the world invests in girls and women, everybody wins. Through our advocacy, we apply a gender lens to all the SDGs to show that investing in gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women creates a ripple effect that spurs growth and progress for all.
Here is how Women Deliver take action for Goal 5: Gender Equality:
Every three years, Women Deliver hosts the largest global conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women. Our next conference will be held on 3-6 June 2019 in Vancouver, Canada, and will bring together more than 6,000 world leaders, influencers, advocates, academics, activists, and journalists from around the world to accelerate progress for girls and women everywhere. The Women Deliver 2019 Conference will focus on several issues from health, nutrition, education, economic and political empowerment to human rights, good governance, and girls’ and women’s agency and equality. It will serve as a catalyst for advocates working to achieve a more gender equal world.
GOOD LUCK LADIES!
