POWER, TOGETHER is the key

POWER, TOGETHER is the key

The ‘Nobel Women’s Initiative’ and 25 organisations fighting to ‘End Period Poverty’ are the winners of the POWER, TOGETHER. AWARDS 2019. The awards honour outstanding initiatives where people join forces and use their power to together advance society and achieve great change. The Awards are tangible examples of the Power, Together of the Community when in action!

“The POWER, TOGETHER. AWARDS recognise the unique drive of women who set aside differences and join forces for a greater cause, because no sustainable change can be reached alone. Together, women can make sure the future holds as many opportunities for girls and women as for boys and men”, says Silvana Koch-Mehrin, President & Founder of Women Political Leaders.

The award to the ‘Nobel Women’s Initiative’ exemplifies the spirit of POWER, TOGETHER. The Initiative galvanizes the undeniable fact that women can and should play a key role in transforming conflict and leading peaceful reconciliation and rebuilding processes.

The award to ‘End Period Poverty’ acknowledges the exceptional drive and the results of organisations that use their POWER, TOGETHER. to end the stigma of menstruation that still plagues society. The award at the Reykjavík Global Forum – Women Leaders will provide, for the first time, a platform for all these initiatives to make connections, share best practices, and builds momentum to shape a truly global movement. A movement where all those involved work hand in hand towards the same goal.

The POWER, TOGETHER. AWARDS will be presented during a ceremony at the Reykjavík Global Forum – Women Leaders on November 20th, in the presence of female leaders from all over the world.
