GPP at Women Deliver 2019 Global Conference
3-6 June 2019  |  Vancouver, Canada

Many of GPP’s member organizations will be represented at the 2019 Women Deliver conference, and we have compiled key resources for members and other grantmakers to support and promote making connections between Lesbian, Bisexual, Queer, Trans, and Intersex (LBQTI) movements and their intersections with movements for gender equality. See below for information about our May 28th Webinar co-hosted with PAWHR and Women Deliver, our list of WD sessions/events relevant to LBQTI issues, and our research/resources for learning more about LBQTI funding.  Newly added: GPP member organizations have developed a position paper for distribution to funders and policy-makers attending Women Deliver 2019.
