We at NFBPWC have come to learn that panel discussions are an excellent way to take impact conversations to the next level. We also have learned that hosting an engaging and impactful public event can be a challenge -- especially over virtual platforms.
So, we hosted a Movie Watch Party and Speaker Panel during the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women to showcase innovative ways for NGOs and activists to use Entertainment (Art and Media) to accelerate their action towards Women’s Rights issues.
We've assembled tools, recommendations and shared practices that the panelists have identified and adopted -- and have listed them below.

Organizations like BPW spent the first part of the pandemic in shock over the backsliding of progress made towards the achievement of gender equality.
We quickly pivoted to taking action – and want to empower others to do so, too!
