Yesterday, I had the great opportunity to enter a room full of young leaders at the Women Deliver office in New York City. They are passionate activists and changemakers from Benin, Egypt, India, Kenya, Sri Lanka, and the USA. Entering the room, I listened in on their strong conversation about feminism, gender equality, intersectionality, the United Nations and invisible barriers to global leadership. These young leaders work in various ways to change and empower their own communities through strengthening sexual and reproductive health and rights, fighting for gender justice, supporting economic empowerment and more.

I took the chance to ask these inspirational individuals two quick questions.

What is your top priority for change by 2030?

Note: The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are due in 2030!

What action are you taking to help make that change possible?
