Commenting on the exhibition, Inna Braverman said: “I am extremely proud to be featured in this exhibition with inspirational female leaders. Research shows that women are still largely underrepresented in the technological sector. We only represent 1% of leadership positions in the combined science, technology, engineering, and mathematics sector, and we also get only 2% of the world’s venture capital funding. As a result, The Vital Voices recognition here at the United Nations is a powerful statement that women are meant to play a critical role in achieving the UN SDGs.”

This interactive storytelling exhibition inside the U.N. Visitors’ Gallery will have an opening reception today Thursday, Feb. 29 and will be attended by esteemed representatives from United Nations Member States and U.S. government officials.

The exhibition was created by Vital Voices Global Partnership, which was co-founded by Secretary Clinton and the late U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, and has provided early support for future Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, Prime Ministers, award-winning innovators, and breakthrough social entrepreneurs, and is supported by the UN Office for Partnerships.

According to the United Nations Office for Partnerships: “2024 marks the beginning of the second half of the 2030 agenda for Sustainable Development. With only 15% of targets being on track, greater investments in women’s proven and innovative solutions could be pivotal to progress.”

“Our aim with this project is to spotlight the critical role of women leaders worldwide in achieving global progress through the SDGs,” said Vital Voices President & CEO Alyse Nelson. “Because women and girls are disproportionately impacted by pressing issues such as climate change, conflict, and inequality, their perspective and ideas are invaluable. Women leaders consistently bring forward unique and inclusive solutions that benefit entire communities, countries, and our shared planet. As world leaders consider how to close current gaps in targets for the Global Goals, we believe that greater investments in women’s proven, innovative solutions will be pivotal to progress.”

During her NYC visit, Inna will also take Join influential women leaders at the High Line in New York City for the 17th Global Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walks. Led by luminaries such as DVF Founder & Co-Chairwoman Diane von Furstenberg, along with Vital Voices Co-Founder, President & CEO Alyse Nelson, this event brings together established and emerging women leaders from various fields for a one-mile walk. Participants will engage in insightful discussions on career growth, work-life balance, career transitions, and conflict resolution – all in the spirit of global community and mentorship.

More than 200 women from New York City will join the walk as mentors and mentees under this year’s theme of “Inspire Inclusion,” recognizing that impact stems from inclusion. This event serves as a prelude to International Women’s Day on March 8, fostering mentorship and camaraderie among women leaders.

Simultaneously, thousands of women across hundreds of cities worldwide will participate in mentoring walks, advocating for equality, and celebrating the power of mentorship. With over 135 walks planned in 43 countries for the 2024 Vital Voices Global Mentoring Walks leading up to International Women’s Day, this event marks a global movement toward gender parity and empowerment.
