Do you have or you know someone with inspiring ideas and solutions to deliver for girls and women? If so, here’s a great opportunity for you.
Every year, in conjunction with International Women’s Day, Women Deliver celebrates the progress made on behalf of girls and women worldwide. Our Women Deliver 100 list in 2011, which featured 100 of the most inspiring people who have delivered for girls and women, was covered by over 100 traditional and new media sources. This year, to continue the momentum, we are spotlighting the top 50 inspiring ideas and solutions that deliver for girls and women. We would love to hear what you think are the most innovative, impactful, and promising advancements in overcoming gender inequality.
These advancements could have been made by an individual, governments, the private sector, or civil society, but they must have helped to improve the condition of girls and women around the world, in one or more of the following 5 categories:
• Technologies and Innovations
• Educational Initiatives
• Health Modernization
• Advocacy and Awareness Campaigns
• Leadership and Empowerment Programs
Examples of inequities that the solutions may have addressed include, but are not limited to: Violence Against Women; Sex Trafficking; Child Marriage; Political Processes; Maternal Health; Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights; HIV/AID; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights; Economic Inequity; or Female Genital Mutilation.
SUBMIT A NOMINATION NOW!
NOMINATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN FEBRUARY 10, 2012.
Once all nominations have been received, a selection committee of experts and advocates from leading global NGOs and foundations will choose 25 per category, with the final Top 50 chosen by online voting. The winners from each category will be featured prominently on Women Deliver’s website, through the selection committee’s social media portals, and at the Women Deliver 2013 conference in Kuala Lumpur.
Submit your ideas and solutions and share how they have delivered for girls and women and you could very well be one of the 50 chosen and featured on Women’s Deliver website.
Notes to Women wishes all the nominees the best.
