VOICE and UNICEF are creating space for local women’s groups to have their voices heard to help set priorities and influence decision-making within the humanitarian system. In a listening session webinar event designed for potential donors to hear directly from women leaders, VOICE and UNICEF will hold a “state of the industry” assessment conversation about the aid system’s funding of women and girl-led organizations. The conversation will center findings from the VOICE “We Must Do Better” research, along with insight and shared experiences from the local women leaders participating in the panel.
An opportunity to share:
Women leaders from VOICE’s network will share their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of the pandemic on their ability to provide services and care for their communities.
