Please join us on Thursday 9th July from 13:00-14:00 for this online lunchtime discussion.

The United Nations Population Fund has warned that the Covid-19 pandemic could lead to an extra 2 million girls worldwide undergoing FGM in the next decade.

In this context, our expert panel will explore the campaign to #EndFGM in Ireland, Kenya, and Somalia. They will discuss opportunities and challenges, and how you can get involved.

It is set to be an inspiring, informative and interactive discussion.

There will also be an opportunity for Q&A.

You can register for tickets here. (Event ended)
