Ahead of the Women Deliver conference, I’d like to share with you an invitation to attend our concurrent sessions, which Girls Not Brides is co-organising – please see the attached flyers for location and time details:

Harnessing the power of education to end harmful gender norms and stereotypes

This concurrent session is led by Global Partnership for Education and is co-hosted by Partner Coalition for Ending Gender Stereotypes in Schools, Room to Read, UN Girls’ Education Initiative, UNICEF India, UN Women Bangladesh, Girls Not Brides and others. The session will spotlight the role education has and can play in breaking the cycle of harmful gender norms with benefits for all young people and the future of societies and economies.

Where is the money? Funding adolescent girls and young feminists

The concurrent session on resourcing is led by AGIP, and co-hosted by Amplify Girls, GAGE/ODI, Plan International, Save the Children and Girls Not Brides. It will be an intergenerational dialogue between girls, donors, researchers and CSOs to discuss what needs to shift to make funding accessible for girls and young feminist-led organisations.

No more excuses! Accountability mechanisms for girls and young women

This concurrent session on accountability is led by AGIP, and Amref Health Africa, and is co-hosted by ICRW, Plan International and Girls Not Brides. It will be a discussion about funders’ accountability for girls and young women, hearing challenges, successful solutions and commitments which ensure that power can be shifted to adolescent girls.
