The Women Deliver Conference is one of the largest multi-sectoral convenings in the gender equality space globally. The Conference gathers advocates from around the world to galvanize momentum towards collective action for girls and women, in all their intersecting identities. It aims to leverage our collective strength to build a broader, stronger, and more diverse gender equality movement in which we are resilient, drive change, and hold governments, leaders, and commitment makers accountable.
The Conference is co-created by grassroots advocates, individuals, and youth, including from and representing communities facing systemic discrimination.
