International Women’s Day

In partnership with Global Citizen, The Asia Foundation, and UN Women, we’re proud to honour International Women’s Day virtually in 2021.
We were joined for a fascinating discussion by Natasha Stott Despoja, Global Citizen Australia Board Director and Australia’s Representative to the Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), Jane Sloane, The Asia Foundation, Ariadne Gorring, CEO, Pollination Foundation, and Alvina Lillie Soaki Erekali,  UN Women Solomon Islands.

We discussed the specific impacts of COVID-19 and climate change on women and girls and the need to elevate women into leadership roles to tackle the issues of the future.
