Women Deliver is well-known for hosting global conferences that bring together people from across a multitude of sectors, issues, and cultures. Held every three years, Women Deliver conferences are fueling stations where organizations and individuals leave re-energized, knowledgeable, connected, and challenged to think outside the box.

Women Deliver Conference is the world’s largest conference on gender equality and the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women.

World leaders, influencers, innovators, and change-makers, make each main stage plenary session memorable and provocative. Women Deliver plenaries are not about speeches and presentations—they’re about engaging dialogue that drives the agenda forward.

More than 6,000 world leaders, influencers, advocates, academics, activists, and journalists will flock to Vancouver from around the world with the drive to accelerate progress for girls and women everywhere. The beautiful Vancouver Convention Centre, a LEED® Platinum certified facility on the waterfont, is an ideal location to host this world-class international event.

The Women Deliver 2019 Conference will focus on power, and how it can drive – or hinder – progress and change.

  • At the heart of gender equality lies the right to power over one’s self and one’s future.
  • At the heart of the calls for structural change lies the need for a more power balanced and equal world.
  • At the heart of global movements for progress lies the power of many, the power of people, the power of change.
  • Empowerment of girls and women benefits everyone; it can transform lives, change the world and power real, sustainable progress.

The Women Deliver 2019 Conference – through the lens of “Power. Progress. Change.” – will examine power operating at three levels:
