The Women Deliver conference is the world’s largest gathering on the health, rights, and wellbeing of women and girls in the world ­­and is coming to Vancouver June 3 – 6, 2019. Women Deliver works to advance gender equity, bringing together a diversity of voices focusing on maternal, sexual and reproductive rights.

We are committed to making this conference accessible to gender equity champions in our community, across intersections.
