I’m delighted to be marking International Women’s Day at the UN’s WFP head quarters where I’ll be a guest speaker addressing the women’s struggle and feminist movement.
The event will be opened by the WFP Executive Director (David Beasley) and closed by the FAO Deputy Director General (Helena Semedo).
I’ll be sharing the stage with a set of incredible women – Giulia Blasi (http://www.giuliablasi.it) and Sarah Jane Morris (https://www.sarahjanemorris.co.uk) – who will also offer a performance after the discussion chaired by Corinne Woods, WFP Director of Communications. The global UN theme for 2019 is “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”.
The event will be live streamed to the WFP Regional Bureaux and country offices, as well as captured by a graphic artist as a digital mural.
