  • Digital Power Of Women Conference 2o24 

    NOVEMBER 17-18, 2024

     

    This year, Power Of Women has partnered with G20 Social (an initiative of the Brazilian Presidency), W20, and Civil 20, to expand the base of social participation in the G20 forum. Our 2nd Digital Power Of Women (DPOW) Conference invites all individuals and groups, especially women and girls, from around the world to participate digitally in the advocacy of public policies for the G20 states, focusing on areas such as environmental protection, peace and conflict resolution, digital space and technology access, economic development, education and entrepreneurship, and many cross-cutting themes all through a female perspective. DPOW 2024 will also highlight the pivotal role of female leadership for a just world and sustainable planet.

     

    We advocate for policies and practices that are gender inclusive and eliminate barriers for women and girls.

    A big milestone was achieved with India’s parliament passing a landmark bill after the G20 summit that reserves a third of its seats in the lower house and state assemblies for women.

    In 2023, Power Of Women collaborated with the Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment Working Group of the Civil 20, an official engagement group of G20 India to amplify advocacy efforts of policies for women and girls through our 1st Digital Power Of Women (DPOW) Conference that ran parallel to the G20 summit in India in September.

  • Our Vision

    We envision a world where the contributions of women and girls are universally recognized as pivotal in achieving global peace, well-being, and sustainable development across communities worldwide.

  • Why our work is needed

    "We must invest in programmes to end violence against women, and to drive women’s inclusion and leadership in economies, digital technologies, peacebuilding and climate action." - UNSG Antonio Guterres

     

    The lack of representation of the female perspective in decision making processes leads to policies and initiatives that fail to address the unique challenges and needs faced by women and girls, not only perpetuating a cycle of inequality, but also contributing to poverty in communities. Females make up half of the world’s population. Numerous studies and reports indicate that when women lead, there’s economic growth, social development, and health and well-being, conflict resolution and peacebuilding, and environmental sustainability are prioritized. We have to consider the perspectives of women and girls in order to effectively address the gender disparity and progress on sustainable development goals.

     "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein

     

    To truly address the multifaceted issues facing our world, we must break away from the status quo and integrate more diverse voices into leadership roles. By empowering women and girls to take active roles in these processes, we can foster new perspectives and innovative solutions that benefit society as a whole.
