Featured Event: CEFM Learning Exchange Webinar on Girl-Led Activism
This event will bring together activists and CARE staff to discuss how development practitioners can catalyze girls’ leadership and take a step back from setting the agenda to listen and learn. The event will take place on August 25 8am EST/6pm Dhaka. Presentations will include:
- Suniti Neogy from CARE USA to explain the necessity of girls’ leadership and how to assess and mitigate the inherent risks of activism
- Jayanthi Pushkaran from EMpower: The Emerging Markets Foundation to discuss what girls’ activism looks like during the COVID-19 pandemic
- CARE Bangladesh will share their experiences implementing this work with girls and what support was needed.
- We will hear from an adolescent girl activist, who will share her greatest success and challenges.
A discussion will follow. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the zoom link. If you would like live translation from English during the event, please also indicate that and what language is needed.

Anti-racism in the Development Sector
Working toward gender justice and against CEFM requires that we examine ourselves to ensure that we are not reinforcing injustice in the ways we work. We are in the midst of a global moment to reject anti-Black racism in all its forms, including in our work. Please check out some resources below to help you continue this work.
