Dear Friend,

I can't believe it’s been one month since we wrapped the Women Deliver 2019 Conference in Vancouver, Canada.
 
I am consistently humbled and inspired by the impact our conference has made. I say "our" because it truly was a collaborative undertaking with incredible partners across the globe. 

Below are just 37 of the ways that WD2019 delivered for girls, women, and gender equality. I invite you to read through them, get as inspired as I am, and continue to push for progress, power, change.

Onwards and upwards,
Katja
