Women Deliver, the world's largest gathering on gender equality, has brought together thousands of policymakers, advocates and youth to discuss how power can drive progress and change.
Education features prominently on the agenda and has been mentioned as the foundation of equality by Justin Trudeau, President Uhuru Kenyatta, and many other. There has been great activity at the Education Hub, a space that hosts conversations about the power of education organized by GPE, Malala Fund, Plan International, UNESCO and UNGEI. Below are some social media highlights from the first two days. Come back for more!
