Event description

Description

Women’s Day is celebrated globally on March 8th every year in honor of their incredible contributions to global society. This day also pays tribute to the influencing role of women around the world to secure women’s rights and build more equitable societies. This day also commemorates the voices of many women that go unheard and who continue to fight for securing their rights and realizing their full potential.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2019, which will take place on 8 March, is “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change”. UNA-OKC will be hosting a panel event on Saturday, March 2, 2019 from 2:00-4:00 pm.

This year's theme will focus on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of social protection systems, access to public services and sustainable infrastructure.

Here is our panel:

Moderator: Maurianna Adams, Community Alliance of Oklahoma

Representative Emily Virgin, Oklahoma House of Representatives Minority Leader (Social Protection Systems; State Legislative Policies and Women's Political Representation)

Vanessa Morrison, Co-founder of BlackSpace Oklahoma (Community Development, Sustainable Infrastructure)

Kelli McNeal, OKC County Health Department (access to public services)

We are very excited about this dynamic and engaging panel with these incredible women. Will you join us this year?

If a scholarship is needed please email us at unausaokc@gmail.com. If you're able to donate, please do, as we will use it to cover individuals who want to attend but require financial assistance. UNA OKC is dedicated to accessibility for all and no one will be turned away.

People can also pay cash/card at the door the day of the event.

We hope to see you there!
