Nothing Kills Like Hunger
At Concern, we know that gender inequality is one of the major barriers to ending extreme poverty - but we also understand that women are often the most effective dynamos of change within their families and communities. We place women and girls at the heart of our programmes - because equality for women is progress for all.
Since 2018, the Women of Concern Annual Awards Luncheon has gathered in Dublin to highlight the drive towards gender equality and pay tribute to those who embody justice, generosity and compassion in their work and daily lives.
This year, the gala will take place on Friday 28 October 2022 – both live, and online.
We look forward to welcoming our corporate supporters back to The Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin, for our first live event in three years. If your company would like to attend, please contact Paul McGrath – firstname.lastname@example.org – who will advise on sponsorship opportunities.
And our online celebration will stream the same day – ensuring that everyone who wishes to support Concern’s work can get involved. Sign up below to reserve your free place.
Each year, Women of Concern recognises an individual from the private or public sector for their exceptional achievements and extraordinary leadership - and this year is no different.
In 2022, we are delighted to honour Ambassador Geraldine Byrne Nason, Ireland’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations and incoming Irish Ambassador to the United States.
During her career, Ambassador Byrne Nason has served in Brussels, New York, Paris, Vienna and Helsinki. As Second Secretary-General in the Department of the Taoiseach from 2011-2014, she was the highest ranking female public servant in Ireland. She is committed to advocating for gender equality, particularly the participation of women and girls in political decision-making and peacebuilding.
From mountain trekking to marathon running, cake sales to table quizzes, there are lots of ways you can support our work.
