Generation Equality Innovation Mastermind

Join us on March 26, 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM EDT
for an event that serves to engage the youth voice around the 2021 Generation Equality Forum's six action coalitions prior to the start of the forum on March 29.

Let's bring perspectives of the next generation forward to ensure the challenges, priorities and proposed solutions of young people around the world are heard and taken seriously as we work to drive immediate and irreversible action towards gender equality.

Sample Agenda

From Mexico to Paris and Beyond:
Gender Equality for the Next Generation

In advance of the Generation Equality Forum, BridgingTheGap Ventures with the support UN Women will co-host an Innovation Mastermind to engage, empower and co-create solutions for gender equality with young women around the world.
A panel of industry leaders and gender equality advocates will connect through intergenerational dialogues to explore some of the greatest barriers to equality, leadership and opportunity for women and girls worldwide.
To ensure young people are at the center of these critical discussions, this Innovation Mastermind will feature breakout sessions facilitated by young changemakers around the six Action Coalitions for the Generation Equality Forum:
