FEMTalk Speaker Series: Champions of Change in the Era of Equity
On August, 24 2019, The US National Committee Greater Los Angeles Chapter for UN Women ("UN Women LA") proudly presents our inaugural speaker series - FEMTalk 2019. The theme is Champions of Change in the Era of Equity.
The FEMTalk speaker series provides a community-based space for storytelling that is thought-provoking, encourages inclusion, equity, and humanity to foster knowledge, inspiration and activism – and jumpstart conversations and actions that matter and promote change that advances society as a whole.
Champions of Change are...
(1) SOCIAL INNOVATORS
Champions of Change develop and deploy effective solutions to challenging systemic issues and strengthen civil society.
(2) ENTREPRENEURS & INTRAPRENEURS
Champions of Change are passionate about seeing their visions become a reality and use forward-thinking approaches to achieve their goals.
(3) GLOBAL CITIZENS
Champions of Change understand that they have a civic responsibility as a citizen of the world. They take an active role in their community and work with others to make our global society more equal, fair and sustainable.
