Gender Equality and the Sustainable Development Goals

The International Women’s Club invited the UNIC Director to address them as their keynote speaker on the Sustainable Development Goals.

The presentation described the importance of the SDGs and the impact they have on everyday life.  With International Women’s Day a week away, the presentation focused Goal 5: Gender Equality to help explain how the Goals worked.

To demonstrate how they are all interconnected, the audience were asked to hold up a card for a specific goal that had been placed on their seat, and then to connect with someone who had a goal that was linked to theirs.  There was a lively Q&A session after the presentation, with a variety of questions ranging from climate change and abolishing plastics, to reducing weapons and upholding peace.
