Atlanta. Chicago. New York. Raleigh. D.C. USNC-UN Women has traveled to each of these five cities for its Annual Conference and Meeting. Held in conjunction with the summer board meeting, the Conference and Member meeting takes place over a weekend in early summer and is a forum for global women’s issues. Whether it was improving maternal health in Chicago or developing strategies to end violence against women in Raleigh, the Conference and Annual Meeting offers the chance for USNC-UN Women to connect with local communities and inspire action beyond the conference.
