Introduction at McMUN Global Leadership Forum

Almas Jiwani is equally as excited about her second stop in Montreal to speak at the McGill Model United Nations Assembly 2016, addressing gender equality. McMUN is the largest and most prestigious Model UN conference of its kind in Canada and ranks among the top academic events at McGill University. More than 1400 visiting delegates will attend the events in addition to 500 in-house students from McGill University.

Ms. Jiwani asserts, “gender equality is one of the single greatest tools we have to eradicating a wide range of global problems, including extreme poverty and food insecurity. For us to succeed and thrive as a global community, there is no question women must have an equal voice. This assembly is a unique opportunity to share some of my experiences globally fighting for equal representation in politics and business with the leaders of tomorrow. One thing is clear, we must do more.”
