A Meaningful Day for Girls
As a result of advocacy efforts from Turkey, Canadaand Peru, the United Nations General Assembly declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Childto end discrimination against girls and to fully and effectively ensure the human rights of girls.
The purpose of the International Day of the Girl Child, which has been observed annually since 2012, matches the goals and activities of Aydın Doğan Foundation. Therefore, we are proudly hosting the International Day of the Girl Child Conference to raise public awareness about this matter and to form the basis of the Foundation's activities.
The Aim of the International Day of the Girl Child Conference
Fully aware of their corporate social responsibilities, Doğan Group and Aydın Doğan Foundation advocate for gender equality in society and to this end have undertaken important initiatives to empower women educationally and socially.
At Aydın Doğan Foundation, we are conducting a series of programs to empower girls and to achieve gender equality. For example, we are organizing the conference titled "Being an Adolescent Girl in a Changing World"in cooperation with UN Women, UNICEFand UNFPAto celebrate the International Day of the Girl Child, which has been observed by the United Nationsfor the last eight years.
The Conference, which will be held on October 11, 2020, aims to draw attention to the International Day of the Girl Child and raise awareness on the empowerment of girls.
