Invitation to Attend U.N. Event in Utah

May 26, 2019

The State of Utah will be hosting an important two-day United Nations Civil Society Conference in Salt Lake City at the Salt Palace Convention Center August 26-28.

The U.N. system is dedicated to solving global issues by focusing on the Sustainable Development Goals and Targets. As Big Ocean Women we have a unique and powerful way to solve the issues and achieve these goals. Ours is a family-friendly focus, and the everyday, boots-on-the- ground women have always immediately connected with our mission and approach. We have seen tremendous success in gathering and empowering women in this work, and we are expecting that this conference will be an opportunity to extend our outreach even farther. This will be a great opportunity to learn trending issues that will impact us at home and connect with our wonderful global sisters and use this international forum to collaborate and share ideas.

We need you there with us representing our Maternal Feminist views in a positive and powerful way!

We are extending an invitation to you to be a part of our BOW U.N. delegation. Please email our BOW Global Committee at bigoceanwomen@gmail.com indicating that you wish to be a part of this delegation. It is critical that our representatives receive outstanding training on the U.N. in order to understand the sustainable development goals and how to articulately engage with others and share with confidence ways these goals can be achieved using our Big Ocean Women culture and philosophy. You will be invited to attend a series of training meetings preceding the Civil Society Conference. These training sessions will be free, and we will let you know the dates and location once you receive an email from the U.N. that your registration has been received and is pending acceptance.

Here is the link to register. Included in the link is a helpful video tutorial on how to register with Indico (their registration platform). The registration deadline is July 17, but we would like to confirm our numbers by mid-June, so please let us know your commitment as soon as possible so we can reserve your spot in our delegation.

Please let us know if you have any questions. We are happy to answer them!

LET’S REPRESENT!

Love,

Big Ocean Women
