What is #WICxUNGA?

WICxUNGA 2021 is a virtual event all about accelerating the 2030 UN Sustainable Development Goals, including gender equality and decent work and economic growth) through digital transformation, economic opportunity, global inclusivity, and leadership development.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a call for action for all countries to “promote prosperity while protecting the planet.” The goals “recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.”

The event is held in tandem with Microsoft’s #Buildfor2030 Hackathon and Ideagen’s 17 Days of Sustainability & Empowering Women & Girls Summit.

The #WICxUNGA event will capture powerful dialogue through unique activations focused on UN SD goals, including gender equality, sustainability, decent work, and economic growth, industry innovation, and strategic partnerships to achieve our collective mission and vision. It will cover social responsibility and collaboration to eliminate inequalities and injustices, including TED-like workshops, plenary sessions, roundtable discussions, and a pitch challenge.

This community event dives deep into addressing challenges we face today with next-generation solutions harnessing AI for good, sustainability, building trusted partnerships and networks, becoming effective strategic advisors, and developing career growth opportunities focused on leadership acceleration. How are thought leaders today changing the narratives for tomorrow? This is #WICxUNGA 2021.
