Soroptimist International shares the Official Report for the upcoming High Level Political Forum (HLPF), an annual gathering of Heads of Governments of Member States and all UN agencies that usually happens in July in New York City.
It is my great joy and honour to share our Soroptimist International Official Report for the upcoming High Level Political Forum (HLPF), an annual gathering of Heads of Governments of Member States and all UN agencies that usually happens in July in New York city.
This year, the HLPF will be held as a Virtual UN Conference where all Heads of Governments and top UN officials will participate online.
Despite this setback, the global impact and significance of the HLPF remains undiminished by COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, the plight of Humanity, especially for women and children and for the sustainability of our Planet has become more pressing than ever!
SISWP contributed significantly to this SI HLPF report and showcased several outstanding and highly sustainable programmes from our SISWP member countries, thanks to the powerful inputs from many of our National Representatives and our ever- diligent and resourceful SISWP Programme team.
I hope you will enjoy reading and discovering the:
- great advocacy initiatives,
- incredible empowerment programmes,
- amazing life transforming projects
- innovative education programmes
found in this SI HLPF Report.
I hope that it will inspire you and renew your commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) especially to ensure Gender Equality across all 17 goals so that no one is left behind!
With the Spirit of Soroptimist Service,
Federation President 2018-2020
