GCNI's 2nd Gender Equality Summit in India resonates the global commitment towards developing a strong India Roadmap towards Gender Equality.
The Summit provides for a national platform to discuss our collective responsibility and exploring pathways towards gender inclusive outcomes.
The Summit, aligned with the principles of the Sustainable Development frameworks calls for greater levels of coordinated involvement from the Governments, Private Sector, not-for-profits, and communities, as drivers and enablers of societal change, through an aggregated championing for gender equality.
The SDG 5 has specific targets which will form a key part of the summit's agenda. The theme of the Summit is "Preparing Women for the Future of Work".
Ours can be the first generation to succeed in ending poverty; just as we are the last to have a chance of saving the planet. … The future of humanity and of our planet lies in our hands. … We have mapped the road to sustainable development; it will be for all of us to ensure that the journey is irreversible .
