The Women Deliver 2023 Conference (WD2023) will promote a robust civic space for feminist action, organizing, and mobilization and will be more inclusive, diverse, accessible, and consultative than ever before by introducing the following five new elements.
WD2023 will host participants both on-site and virtually through a hybrid convening model. The Conference will be co-created and co-led by advocates and leaders who continue to shape the dialogue, collaboration, and collective action needed to ensure that WD2023 represents and serves girls and women, in all their intersecting identities. The Conference will leverage new and innovative ways to create spaces, both in-person and online, that enable communities often underrepresented at global convenings to participate.
WD2023 aims to convene 6,000 participants on-site and an additional 100,000 participants online. Women Deliver will adjust for increased on-site participation should restrictions and best practices around the COVID-19 pandemic change.
The Global Dialogue aims to present new evidence and knowledge, promote solutions, and engage a broader spectrum of voices than ever before to 1) catalyze action for girls and women in the lead up to WD2023, and 2) connect diverse communities and sectors by linking previously disparate organizations and movements to drive collective action on gender equality and SRHR.
The Global Dialogue will include webinars and workshops and will be carried out locally while remaining globally accessible. Satellite events will also be held in local communities around the world, hosted by a wide range of partners, including civil society and youth advocates.
Colombia and South Africa are the first countries invited to participate as Regional Convening Partners given their commitment to gender equality and their deep dedication to the Conference host country selection process.
