Expo 2020 Dubai and Cartier announce the Women’s Pavilion
EXPO 2020 Dubai and Cartier have announced a collaboration to present the Women’s Pavilion, celebrating female changemakers all over the world. Offering new perspectives on women, this unique collaboration will work towards building a legacy to inspire change.
At the next World Expo held in Dubai, the Women’s Pavilion will create a space of expression designed to spark a dialogue among a diverse community of artists, scientists, thought leaders, politicians, entrepreneurs, business leaders and more.
Al Wasl Plaza – the heart of Expo 2020 Dubai
Guests will be taken on an educational journey through male and female contributions to women’s empowerment and gender equality, which will highlight important milestones for women’s rights, as well as the challenges that remain to face women today. Through these aspirational stories, the Women’s Pavilion aims to raise global awareness and inspire people from all generations to make a difference within their community and beyond.
United Nations Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UN Women, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, and international human rights lawyer Amal Clooney – both defenders of and campaigners for women’s right, women’s empowerment and gender equality – will be lending their support to the Women’s Pavilion.
Embracing the initiative, Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, said, “I applaud the UAE for dedicating a space for the millions of visitors to Expo 2020 Dubai to learn about the crucial roles that women play from communities to the world stage, while recognising the challenges they still face every day.”
