We are women leaders rising in solidarity to save lives and protect livelihoods. We call for all leaders to meet the human crisis of COVID-19.
Women are on the front lines of the COVID-19 response and recovery. Saving lives as first responders. Finding solutions as innovators. Facing the pandemic as political leaders. Countries with women leaders have had fewer deaths and are on track to a faster economic recovery.
The Women Rise for All Event brings together women from all sectors in recognition of front-line leadership that is winning against COVID-19 and is inspiring the action required to come out of the pandemic stronger as part of Decade of Action to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.
A new and interactive event convened by the United Nations Deputy Secretary-General Amina J. Mohammed gathers influential women leaders from around the world to look at how their leadership is shaping the COVID-19 response and what it will take to build back better. From local to global—Women Rise for All will take on critical issues facing our world. The Women Rise for All Event is supported by the UN Office of Partnerships (UNOP), a global gateway to co-create opportunities to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.
Discussions will also focus on how these dialogues can inform and influence the transformation of our response and can support inclusion and sustainability beyond the pandemic and into the Decade of Action to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.
