We are counting the days until we travel to Vancouver, Canada for the Women Deliver 2019 Conference (3-6 June)!

Women Deliver is a global conference that happens every three years. This year, more than 9,000 people will come together to celebrate the theme, "Power. Progress. Change."

Will you be there? Let us know in the comments!

For those who are able to make the trip to Vancouver, we hope you will come find the World Pulse Community Space at Booth 020.

We’re also hosting a workshop, “Log On. Rise Up: Put the power of digital campaigning and networking in your hands!”Our workshop will be held: Wednesday 5 June, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm PST, at Room 221-222, Vancouver Convention Centre and will be a chance to share new ideas and resources to grow online movements, channel your voice to global influencers, and gain greater digital confidence to log on and rise up! More details on the workshop can be found here. 

And before you finish packing, we have one very special request of you: 

If you have a tiny bit of space in your luggage, please pack one extra piece of fabric that represents you, your family, culture or country.

We are planning an in-person storytelling experience at our booth throughout the day on Monday 3 June. Come by our booth, tell us a story about the fabric you have brought, then select where on our booth you would like to hang it. Together, we will create a beautiful quilt representing the stories and people behind World Pulse. With your permission, we’ll share your photo and a quote on our social media channels after you tell your story. We will of course return the fabric to you at the end of the conference if you stop by our booth on the last day to pick it up!

We have lots of other fun activities planned as well, so stop by our booth and say hello, leave a comment and let us know you are coming, or RSVP to our Facebook event.

And for those of you who won’t be able to attend, Women Deliver is providing a live stream here to follow.

We will also be actively sharing stories, photos and videos on our social media channels, so follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Hi Dawn,

This is very cool, and I love the ethnic fabric idea. I can't wait to see those photos, and to hear how the conference goes.

Hi Dawn,
This sounds like a place I would have loved to be in. The idea of fabrics representing diversity which is the hallmark of World Pulse is cool.

Do have a great time. Looking forward to the pictures and updates.

Hi Dawn,
I am soooo sorry not to be able to be there. There was a waiting list of 1500 by the time I realized it was happening! I will be following the live stream as much as possible and am so glad that World Pulse will be there!!!
