During this year’s UNAGB International Women’s Day event, we will be discussing female leadership by looking through the lens of female journalists. Female journalists risk not only backlash from sharing their stories, but also face the added challenge of gender discrimination. Whether you are a journalist or not, the event will inspire you to become a storyteller and leader in the Greater Boston community, helping to further several of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

All proceeds from the event will go to supporting scholarships for the UNAGB Women in Leadership Summer Institute for young girls seeking to improve their leadership skills and learn about global issues.
