When you invest in the health, rights and wellbeing of girls and women there is a ripple effect that goes way beyond the individual. When you invest in girls and women, everybody wins.
I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
I also commit to undertake the following:
Through the multi-partner, multi-sector, multi-issue Deliver for Good - Deliver for Girls and Women campaign, we in 2017 will: a) use storytelling, develop messaging and work with global media to change the narrative and position girls and women from being victims and vulnerable, to being powerful changemakers and drivers of development; b) mobilise an additional 15 multi-sector ally organisations committed to ensuring the centrality of girls and women in SDG implementation & global development.
Elevate the voices of 400 Women Deliver Young Leaders by creating and supporting 100 speaking opportunities (one-to-one meetings, presentations, panel discussions, interviews) in 2017 to advance gender equality and the health, rights, and well-being of girls and women.
