Description

Join us as we come together to celebrate International Women's Day 2020.

Enjoy a beautiful and festive evening with women and girls from across Long Island. We will hear from esteemed speakers, share our own stories and be inspired to broaden perceptions, challenge stereotypes, improve situations and take action for equality everywhere.

This year’s dinner theme is #EachForEqual, as we celebrate women’s achievements and lend our voices to the call for gender equality across the world. As Gloria Steinem, world-renowned activist once explained, "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights."

During the evening, we are honored to welcome the following leaders as our featured speakers:

  • Nazia DeFrank, CEO & Founder of Gourmet Ghee Co. & Gheelicious LLC., a globally recognized company that works with celebrities and award shows, making designer butter. Veteran casting producer, entrepreneur, writer.

  • Evelyn Kandel, Nassau County Poet Laureate (2019-2021), US Women’s Marine Corps Veteran, served during the Korean War. Writer, teacher, artist.

  • Sydney Ginsburg, One World Girl’s youth advisory council president and creator of OWG Girl Talk!, an online community that unites girls to be empowered, supported and inspired.

Also, The Nassau County Office of Asian American Affairs will honor several high school girls with a Changemaker Citation Award for outstanding leadership and service in the community.

Women and girls of all ages are invited, and we will have fun educational activities and arts/crafts for the youngest girls in attendance.

If you cannot be with us, please consider a donation in support of One World Girl. You can do so here on Eventbrite or by visiting our website: www.oneworldgirl.org/support.


Special thanks to dinner committee members Blythe Adamo, Moriah Adamo, Rev. Lori Burgess, Elena Edelstein, Beth Miller, Mariam Munawer and Mayuri Tandon for making this evening possible.
