FP Digital Summit: Her Power
October 26 & 27
Women's Voices. Global Impact.
FP’s Her Power returns this year with vigor. Despite the setbacks COVID-19 has caused for women and girls worldwide, and its adverse impacts on progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, the crisis has also galvanized new commitments and transformative steps toward gender equality.
Historically, the U.S. elected their first female Vice President and sent more women to Congress than ever before. Around the world, more and more women are holding top leadership positions in government and the private sector, demonstrating the benefits of gender equality in business and society. Globally, movements like the 2021 Generation Equality Forum are generating multilateral support and strategic action to address the many risks and barriers women continue to face.
FP’s third annual Her Power Summit will bring together prolific changemakers as well as unsung heroines spearheading targeted interventions and systemic change around the globe. Our program will explore the gender-factor in combatting the dual crises of the pandemic and climate change and how applying a gendered lens to global health and recovery efforts can have longterm benefits for economies and societies.
