PROPOSAL

THE MOVEMENT

- Executive Summary -

Empowering our women leadership is a global challenge, particularly in the global health arena, where too often the female voice is not at the stage of dialogue of health issues, including health issues directly related to women. Moreover, with the global movement to achieve equality across gender for the 21st century, we feel that health community can do more-and should be doing more!  We are proposing a health sector driven, capacity building summit for women leadership in global health in Spring 2016 in order to create a platform for collaboration and achievement.

  1. We are would like to speak with those who are interested in:

  2. Partnering with us, either as an individual or organization;

  3. Promoting our cause and spreading the word;

  4. Serving an advisory role in our summit/movement

  5. Contributing their ideas and creative solutions to the summit

  6. Supporting the summit and movement financially through funding support
