During this year’s United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 76), world leaders, advocates, and private sector actors will come together virtually from 14 - 30 September to address the world’s most pressing challenges – from COVID-19 to climate change.

Once again, UNGA will stream directly onto screens around the world. As advocates, we have a unique opportunity to reinforce why gender equality – and the health and rights of girls and women, in all their intersecting identities – must remain at the center of every discussion and decision.

This year, Women Deliver is proud to support meaningful youth engagement and co-leadership at UNGA through the attendance of over 50 Women Deliver Young Leaders at YOUNGA  and UNGA.

We hope you will join us in championing why building forward a healthier, more equitable, and more sustainable world for all people and the planet depends on realizing gender equality. Tune in to the events Women Deliver staff, Young Leaders, and partners will participate in, and follow us on Twitter for live coverage throughout UNGA.
