Chapter Update: Letter from the President

Dear Members & Friends,

Happy Spring! The SF Chapter of USNC-UN Women has a lot going on right now! Board of Directors elections, film fest and Silicon Valley Gender Equality Summit planning, annual membership meeting coming up soon…Four of our board members, including me, were honored to be delegates to the UN’s 61st Session of the Commission on the Status of Women in March in New York. We got to participate in talks about the challenges, progress and future of women’s economic empowerment in the workplace and meet leaders of UN Women and the UN! The highlight for me was getting to speak one-on-one with Amina J. Mohammed, the new Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, a brilliant Muslim feminist mother of six from Nigeria. She was delighted to hear about our chapter’s forthcoming events and appreciative of our efforts to fundraise for UN Women. Let’s keep up the great work!

Amy Logan
