About unite 2030: International Women’s Day


Our flagship program, UNITE 2030 is a gathering young leaders where participants spend two days ideating, planning, and developing a new and innovative solution to a particular global challenge, in this case, Gender Inequality. Throughout the weekend, you will work with a team of strangers from all over the world (soon to become friends!) to put your solution into an Action Plan. Your solutions are then pitched to a panel of world-class judges for the opportunity to win the UNITE 2030 Challenge. One team will win, but the lessons and connections you will build in the meantime will last a lifetime.

During UNITE 2030: International Women’s Day, delegates will be “hacking” a solution to issues relating to gender inequality across the world. Be it access to education, period poverty, inequality in the workplace, sexual violence, freedom of marriage, divorce rights, violence - we’ll tackle the ins and outs of gender inequality across the world. The theme for International Women’s Day is #BalanceForBetter, and all across the world, women and men will be standing up to promote equality everywhere.
