Empowering Girls

 

Rotarians around the world, join Zones 33/34 for a thought provoking series to #EmpowerGirlsNow.  

When: Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 11:00 am EST to 12:00 pm EST USA

Where: Zoom Webinar, Register by clicking here: http://www.rotaryshares.org/empowergirlsnow

Who:  All Rotarians and Guests are welcome as we learn from Elizabeth Usovicz, Rotary International Director and Chair of the Empowering Girls task force and Dr. Josephine Ojiambo, Rotary International Representative to UNICEF and the UN office in Nairobi.  

Why:  Equality is a fundamental human right that’s necessary for a peaceful, prosperous, and sustainable world. Still, girls and women worldwide face inequities in areas including health and education, and they experience violence and poverty at higher rates than men.  

What you will walk away with:  Inspiration and Ideas for Club projects, District Conference ideas, Club presentation ideas and so much more.

Empowering girls aligns with Rotary’s areas of focus and the goals of our Action Plan. See details on that here https://my.rotary.org/en/news-media/office-president/presidential-initiatives.  Read the Global Gender Gap Report here wef.ch/gendergap21. Additional Webinars on the Empowering Girls topic will follow in March and May.

We can increase our impact through projects that protect, empower, and create equity for girls. Join us to offer more opportunities for girls to elevate their voices and articulate their views, ideas, and opinions.
