Women of Concern

This year, Concern Worldwide is proud to host our second Women of Concern Awards Luncheon in Ireland, to highlight the drive towards gender equality and pay tribute to those who embody justice, generosity, and compassion in their work and daily lives.

A core element of the luncheon is to honour an individual from the private or public sector for their exceptional achievements and extraordinary leadership in this area. This year we will pay tribute to Ms. Sinéad McSweeney, Managing Director, Twitter Dublin and VP of Public Policy EMEA at Twitter – an inspirational leader committed to progress and fuelled by her belief in respect, empathy, honesty and resilience as fundamental business principles.

Women of Concern 2018 highlights

Gender Equality: at the heart of our strategy

When Concern begins working with a community, it is women and girls who are most often the first that we work with – not only because persistent inequality in all societies means that women are disproportionately affected by poverty and oppression – but because Concern understands that women are the most effective dynamos of change within their families and communities.

We understand that if you invest sustained time and resources into the lives of women in the community – providing holistic economic and social support – that they can lead in lifting themselves, their families and their communities out of extreme poverty forever.

You can make a difference

By joining us on Friday, October 11, you show solidarity with women and girls fighting the forces of oppression and discrimination, and directly support them in achieving major and long-lasting improvements in their lives – one woman, one community at a time.
