Driving forward the momentum gathered from a successful second global conference, Women Deliver is organizing a side event for delegates to the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS). A day before the Special Session begins, UN member country delegates, NGOs, corporations, donors, UN agencies, youth leaders and media will gather in New York City to discuss progress made on the Millennium Development Goals as well as concrete steps to be taken. Through featured speakers and round-table discussions, participants will focus on commitments to MDGs 5, 4 and 6; provide messages that can be incorporated in member country oral statements at the UNGASS; and promote networking and collaboration between governments, corporations, NGOS, and youth at the country level. Capacity is limited, and participation is by invitation only.
