In the last ten years, many women leaders have sparked significant progress in ensuring sustainable development policy is gender responsive. From combatting the climate crisis to eradicating poverty, women’s leadership has been transformative at multiple levels. This special event will celebrate some of these women leaders with a ceremony to showcase the important advancements these women spearheaded.

Drinks and light fare will be served.
