Power. Progress. Change.
During WD2019, 8,008 of us gathered in Vancouver, Canada — with more than 200,000 others joining remotely — world leaders and youth leaders, frontline changemakers and social entrepreneurs, activists, advocates, and academics came together to drive progress on gender equality through the lens of power.
Power is not a zero-sum game, and gender equality is not a battle of the sexes. More power for some does not necessarily mean less power for others. Evidence shows that when women thrive and are equal, there is a ripple effect and everyone stands to benefit.
Over 8,000 people from 169 countries participated, including:
- 2,500 Organizations
- 169 Countries
- 1,408 Young People
- 2,593 Delegates sponsored in some way by Women Deliver
