Reflecting on today's programming, we are so inspired by the strength and passion of the 8,000+ people joining us in Vancouver. Today was jam-packed with thoughtful discussions around the role of men and fathers in unpaid care work, the impacts of the Global Gag Rule, and the power of stories, inclusion, and art in driving gender equality forward (to name a few!).
