Siobhan Neilland & OneMama.org Hosting United Nations Event on Global Funding Solutions
OneMama.org and Siobhan Neilland will be returning again to the United Nations March 2016 for the UN Women Commission on the Status of Women 60 (CSW 60). Siobhan Neilland will represent OneMama.org as a Women’s Intercultural Network (WIN) International NGO Partner Delegate.
We are also excited to announce that this year OneMama.org and The 50 Women Project’s Jessica Buchleitner will be hosting a parallel event, Global Funding Solutions From Social Entrepreneurs. We are bringing together social entrepreneurs from across the world to discuss how we will end violence against women with grassroots empowerment and creative, sustainable means of funding: “After experience working as UN delegate last year, one of the things I realized was that a lot of talk was about the issues and not as many panels were on solutions. So OneMama.org wanted to facilitate a dialogue on solutions. We want to share the sustainable funding solutions we are implementing and other solutions being implemented by organizations and people we admire. We are excited to give a voice for women and social entrepreneurial programs across the globe combatting violence against women,” said Siobhan Neilland, OneMama.org founder.
Our incredible panel includes impactful women creating social change through innovative means in their communities. Panelists include Regional Representative for the Secretary of Labor, Elmy Bermejo, Editor of Women News Network and 50 Women Project founder, Jessica Buchleitner, Founder of the SAMATATA Foundation, Bineta Diop, Political Activist, Award-Winning Producer Adryenn Ashley, and our very own Siobhan Neilland, founder of OneMama.org and Fortune 500 Consultant.
This event is open to the public, and if you are in the New York City area on March 14, 2016, we encourage you to attend. Our Parallel Event, Global Funding Solutions From Social Entrepreneurs, begins at 8:30 a.m. in the CCUN Boss Room (8th floor) across the street from the United Nations Campus. We hope to see you there!
