Confirmed speakers include Ambassador Catherine M. Russell, U.S. Department of State; Dr. Tessie San Martin, PLAN International USA; Susan Markham, U.S. Agency for International Development; Aldijana Sisic, UN Women; Sarah Hendriks, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; adolescent girl and boy ambassadors; young human rights advocates; and implementers from the Global South among many others.
