Humanity & Inclusion will be at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference
Starting June 3, Humanity & Inclusion will have a presence at the Women Deliver 2019 Conference, which gathers more than 6,000 people every three years, and this year meets in Vancouver, Canada. This year’s conference focuses on “power, and how it can drive – or hinder – progress and change.”

A four-person delegation will represent HI, including Dr Alessandra Aresu, Inclusive Health Policy Lead, Marie-Charlotte Garin, from the Making it Work project, Agata Turbanska, who manages institutional funding for our Canada team, and Sara Goldberg, U.S. Director of Fundraising.
Alessandra will speak on two panels. First, the UN Women panel called “Communities in Action to End Violence against All Women and Girls” happens on June 2 from 10-12 (see this flier!)
In partnership with Plan Canada , the GAGE programme (hosted at the Overseas Development Institute ), she’ll also speak at the “Inclusive Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights: Leaving no Women and Girls Behind” side event on the 4th at 10:30 am (details here ) at the CanWaCH Canada Pavilion powered by the Women Deliver 2019 Mobilization Canada. To increase awareness of this event, an HI initiative, spectators will be invited to use the #InclusiveSRHR hashtag on social networks.
On June 5th, she’ll be at the Experts’ Desk from 1-130 talking about “Key Populations: people with disabilities.”
HI will also have a booth (#972) in the expo hall, so guests can stop by to find out more about HI, and load up on some swag!
The conference is sold out, but is expected to draw a strong online crowd. You can interact, too, by registering for WDLive, the Virtual Conference. On social media, conference attendees will use the #WD2019 hashtag.
