“In over two decades, the call to action has become a multi-stakeholder partnership in which participants work to advance the underlying principle of the UN sustainable development goals which is to leave no one left behind.”

“All of us — as the private sector, civil society, labor unions, NGOs, universities, foundations, and members of the great State of New York — must come together in an alliance to recommend and design programs to create equity and progress in achieving gender equality” said Lilian Ajayi Ore, Founder/CEO, Global Connections for Women Foundation and University faculty at NYU SPS.
