The World's Biggest Mama Meetup

Flagship Event at United Nations headquarters

On March 8th (International Women's Day), Mindr and the United Nations Foundation's Global Moms Challenge are organizing the World's Biggest Mama Meetup, calling on mothers worldwide to come together, wherever you are, to support each other and foreground mothers' voices and issues within the global gender equality conversation.

The flagship gathering for this global campaign will take place at the United Nations in New York City, hosted by the Women's International Forum and sponsored by the Mission of Austria to the UN. The event will be live-streamed on United Nations TV. And for what may be the first time in United Nations history, crying babies are welcome.

Bring the little one and join us for this celebration of mothers as leaders and changemakers. You'll hear from trailblazing mothers across the United Nations and some very special guests, and you'll see live updates from other mama meetups taking place around the world. Parents, caregivers and allies of all genders are an essential part of this conversation, and together we'll make history.


  1. Clear security: Attendees should arrive from 12pm to collect their UN grounds pass and progress through airport-style security.
  2. Get ready for your close-up: After clearing security, you will be guided to the event space, UN Conference Room 2. On your way through the UN General Assembly lobby, stop to capture this historic moment at our #MAMAMEET2018 photo booth, and chat with other participants until the conference doors open at 1pm.
  3. Celebrating mothers as leaders and changemakers: Our panel discussion will take place from 1:15-2:30pm, after which participants will be invited to stay and mingle.
