Through lived experiences, we know the following statement to be true:
“Gender equality is not just the concern of half of the world’s population; it is a human right, a concern for us all, because no society can develop – economically, politically, or socially – when half of its population is marginalized.” (Robinson, Figueres & Mohammed, 2015)
This event aims to celebrate individuals and organizations who keep the mission to support women and men in their daily endeavors while reflecting on the gaps that persist in their endeavors.
