My first Women Deliver experience was impactful on many levels. Navigating a huge space with about 8000 participants representing 165 countries, I was able to see former and current colleagues as well as mentees and mentors from various networks, including the Global Fund for Women, African Women’s Development Fund, Rise Up, Moremi Initiative, Opportunity Collaboration, Akili Dada and World Pulse among others.  My primary assignment that took me to Women Deliver was with MasterCard Foundation. With a bold and audacious commitment to ensure a world where young women prosper, Mastercard Foundation organized a series of side events amplifying the voices of “Young Women at Work.” I moderated one of these sessions on “Enhancing Gender Equity and Reclaiming Power Through Transformative Art”, with panelists: Tracy Keza; Heather Dickson; and Nana Kofi Acquah. Eyala coordinated for a group of African women attending Women Deliver to gather and share best practices for sisterhood, self care and solidarity. Finally, having recently contributed my story to We Will Lead Africa’s project – Volume Two: Women (African Everyday Leadership Stories)– 32 stories by 36 contributors, it was an honor to meet Yabome Gilpin-Jackson, one of the forces behind We Will Lead Africa – she happens to live in Vancouver where Women Deliver was happening. Women Deliver was a success and impactful.
