Join Mindr and Save the Children for a soiree overlooking the iconic flags of United Nations Plaza, featuring an insightful panel discussion about the ways each of us can be the change we wish to see for every child.
Children born today have a better chance than at any time in history to grow up healthy, educated and protected, according to Save the Children’s newly released Global Childhood Report, which marks the organization’s 100th year.
Over canapés and mocktails on Wednesday June 19th at 5-7pm, you are invited to hear from leaders at Save the Children, the United Nations and Global Citizen about the victories to date — and the challenges still ahead — in the journey to securing every child a safe, happy and fulfilled childhood.
Our panel of experts will feature:
Carolyn Miles, President and CEO of Save the Children, which serves over 155 million children in the US and in 120 countries
Robert Skinner, Executive Director of the Office for Partnerships at the United Nations
Madge Thomas, Senior Director, Global Policy and Government Affairs at Global Citizen, a movement using its collective voice to end extreme poverty by 2030
Negin Janati, Director, Media & Communications, Global Programs & Humanitarian Response at Save the Children
We’ll discuss the key factors driving change for children (from poverty eradication to the elevation of more women into positions of power), how the US compares to other countries in protecting and advancing children’s needs (hint: we’re not in the top 10), and how each of us can be instrumental in driving forward the agenda for change.
We encourage men and women alike to join the conversation. Babies and children of all ages are welcome.
