VIRTUAL EVENT DESCRIPTION:
Power and Partnerships: Centering Equity in Global Development and Humanitarian Programs.
June 6-8, 2022
The Gender Plus Summit is an inclusive thought leadership event that brings together diverse development and humanitarian stakeholders from around the world to collectively learn about key gender and social inclusion challenges and opportunities. Summit principles include prioritizing localization so that the experiences, evidence and voices of historically excluded people living in the Global South are front and center; aligning with diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility strategies; ensuring people with different kinds of disabilities have the reasonable accommodations they need to fully participate and lead; spotlighting the voices and experiences of people with different gender identities and sexual orientations; taking equitable approaches to address harmful and unfair power dynamics; and using a strengths-based approach to identify tangible solutions and available resources.
The Summit on June 6-8, 2022, will have 5 sectoral tracks (Economic Empowerment, Transformational Health, Inclusive Education, Climate Change/Environment, and Gender-based Violence) and will help answer 3 key questions:
1. What does an equitable, inclusive, accessible, and/or intersectional partnership among institutions look like?
2. What are the biggest barriers and approaches to achieving transformational partnerships among institutions?
3. What evidence and wisdom is there that more equitable partnerships help catalyze greater gender equality, social inclusion, accessibility, safeguarding, and program results?
The official language of the event is English. However, simultaneous interpretation will be available in the following languages: American Sign Language, International Sign, French, Spanish, and Arabic. Additional languages may be available upon request. Additional reasonable accommodations may also be available upon advanced request by emailing Jackie Buckley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
