Rise Up’s delegation of powerful leaders who are championing change for girls, youth, and women in their communities and countries around the world, will participate in Women Deliver 2019. Women Deliver is the world’s largest conference on the health, rights, and well-being of girls and women in the 21st century, serving as a catalyst for global advocates working to achieve a more equitable world.
Rise Up Leaders will also be presenting at several events at Women Deliver, including:
When Girls Rise, We All Rise
Wednesday, June 5, 6:00 – 8:00 am | West Building of the Vancouver Convention Center, Room 208
Join Rise Up & Girl Up for this interactive session marking the launch of our new Girls’ Voices Curriculum. Youth activists, including Rise Up leaders from around the world, will use this powerful new curriculum to lead dynamic activities and an engaging dialogue over breakfast. The curriculum is an important tool for girl-led advocacy that amplifies girls’ voices and enables them to lead change in their own communities to build a stronger movement for gender equality. Presented by Rise Up and Girl Up.
The Power of We: When Youth Take Charge
Monday, June 3, 6:00 – 8:00 am | West Building of the Vancouver Convention Center, Room 220
Join Rise Up and Johnson & Johnson to hear from amazing young leaders from Bangladesh, South Africa, Pakistan, and India on why engaging young people is essential to improving the health and well-being of youth around the world. Young people are creating solutions that have real potential to both improve the persistent health challenges affecting youth populations and to address the limitations and inequities that exist throughout the current health system. We will examine the health barriers that impede girls’ and young women’s ability to achieve their full potential, as well as real-life examples and opportunities for young leaders to address these barriers through their own advocacy and design of youth-friendly health services and programs. In partnership with Johnson & Johnson.
No registration required.
