Get Directions

Governments, businesses and civil society together with the United Nations are mobilizing efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Agenda by 2030. Universal, inclusive and indivisible, the Agenda calls for action by all countries to improve the lives of people everywhere.

While the world has achieved progress towards gender equality and women’s empowerment under the Millennium Development Goals (including equal access to primary education between girls and boys), women and girls continue to suffer discrimination and violence in every part of the world.

Discuss the gaps between women and girls who, even within the same country, are living worlds apart because of their income status, race/ethnicity, or where they live.

We welcome Sr. Margaret Mayce who represents the worldwide order of Dominican Sisters at The UN.

Networking, Light dinner and wine (as always) is included.
