3rd speaker to be announced
During the last four months of 2013, the United Nations Association of the USA convened community consultations across the U.S. to discuss and assess the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Results from the MY World Global Survey revealed that participants at these events ranked equality among men and women as their third priority as compared with the global ranking of ninth and nationwide ranking of eighth. As UNA prepares to release its formal report on its findings from these consultations, panelists at this event will reflect on the challenges and achievements of the MDGs for girl and women issues, discuss why gender equality is central to all aspects of the next development framework, and how advancing and empowering girls and women will positively impact other global priority issues.
