International Day of the Girl Roundtable: Inclusive Education and Adolescent Girls

9:30am–11:00am EST


Join FHI 360 on October 6, 2022, for a roundtable with leaders from the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Bank and Leonard Cheshire to honor the International Day of the Girl (October 11, 2022). Speakers from around the world and attendees will explore the intersection of gender equality and inclusive education.


Adolescent girls with disabilities are one of the most marginalized and excluded groups of learners worldwide. This roundtable will show that — with the right approaches — adolescents with disabilities, especially girls, can have access to education, be safe and learn.
