An International Conference on Women's Rights and Gender Equality
Women Deliver, the world’s largest conference on women’s rights and gender equality, is held every three years. This past June it took place in Vancouver, Canada.
Over 8,000 delegates from 165 different countries met for three days to take part in lectures, workshops, expert panels, and multiple special events focused on the chosen theme for 2019: “Power. Progress. Change.”
Miren Bengoa, Executive Director of Fondation CHANEL, was invited to participate as part of a panel session on the future of work as well as on other panels about funding for the development sector and the characteristics of philanthropic funds for gender equality in the world. In the latter session, organized in partnership with the OECD, she said, “There are still too few foundations at the international level that provide significant funding for these issues, and even fewer that are exclusively dedicated to them!”
The Fondation CHANEL team was actively involved in this major conference, even creating a collaborative space for the occasion to welcome and dialogue with its many partners.
