#EqualEverywhere: Champions of Change

Virtual Event

Last year took an extraordinary toll on girls and women, and the movement for gender equality as the COVID-19 crisis erased recent and modest gains the world had made toward gender equality. In 2021, we are joining partners and communities to take stock of the challenges ahead and push together for lasting progress, so equality can be fully realized for all girls and women.

As part of the #EqualEverywhere campaign and to commemorate International Women’s Day, the UN Foundation will host an invitation-only #EqualEverywhere celebration on Friday, March 5, 2021 at 11 a.m. EST with a virtual public premiere on March 8, International Women’s Day.

You are invited to this virtual high-level convening of corporate leaders, influencers, and global change-makers, which will:

• address the state of gender equality
• highlight the work of extraordinary women leaders
• galvanize momentum to make 2021 a year of ambitious action towards achieving gender equality.
