Last week, WWDA Staff member Sophie Cusworth attended the Oceanic Pacific Regional Convening of the Women Deliver 2023 Conference. The event was a wonderful opportunity to foster collaborative discourse on matters impacting women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people across the region. Key priorities developed at the regional convening will be taken to the Women Deliver 2023 Global Conference in Rwanda in July. Read Sophie’s Report from the event here.

During the event, there was an agreement to reconvene the session “Nothing about us without us: Regional Dialogue on Disability” to allow better attendance for people with disability. The aim will be to develop some recommendations and key priorities.
