Education and Empowerment – a SDG themed Speed Date Mentoring Event

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for progress on gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls (SDG 5). Education will play a key role in reaching this goal, with SDG 4 aiming to eliminate gender disparities in education by 2030.

As part of our 17 SDGs in 2018 series, the UNAA Victoria Young Professionals is thrilled to present this special speed date mentoring event.

We are inviting experienced leaders share their expertise with mentees in a small group discussion format, followed by networking and refreshments.

Don’t miss this chance to hear from and engage with these fabulous leaders as we debate Victoria’s role in the SDGs on inclusive education and gender equality.
