While working on my talk for the upcoming The Global Filipino Investors seminar in Singapore, I received the following email from Anastasia Dellaccio, the Outreach and Communications for the United Nations Foundation.
Having been a strong supporter of Social Media for Social Good and missed last year’s Social Good Summit, I was thrilled that there’s an upcoming Women Deliver + Social Good Conference in a city near me – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!
In a few weeks we will announce the dates of the next Social Good Summit. After last year’s Social Good Summit and record breaking global conversation, we listened when you said we needed to do more than just host a few events a year. You told us we needed to ensure that global conversations around the most important issues facing our world not only continue, but offer solutions.
On Monday, May 27th at Women Deliver, we’ll be unveiling +SocialGood, a global community of innovators, social entrepreneurs, and thought leaders united around a shared vision: Leveraging the power of technology and new media to make the world a better place.
We would love for you to join us. Here’s how:
· Join +SocialGood
You would be an incredible addition to this community, and we’d love to be able to feature you and your work in the first phase of our launch.

We’re looking for +SocialGood leaders around the world to join us, and will be promoting the project across all of our social media channels throughout the summer.

WomenDeliver+SocialGood is being held on the eve of the Women Deliver conference, the largest women’s health and empowerment conference to date. Women Deliver will gather more than 5,000 global leaders, advocates, civil society members, media and more.
Women Deliver is a global advocacy organization bringing together voices from around the world to call for action to improve the health and well-being of girls and women. We work globally to generate political commitment and resource investments to reduce maternal mortality and achieve universal access to reproductive health.
RSVP here to attend.
To address the world’s biggest problems, we need to think beyond today and focus on the future. Therefore, speakers will be reflecting on the following question:
What are we trying to achieve for women’s health and empowerment by 2030, and how can we use technology and digital media to lay the groundwork for sustainable solutions now?
WomenDeliver+SocialGood will start with a cocktails and networking period, and then launch into panels and presentations. We’ll discuss empowering youth, child development, safe births and much more.
If you can’t go to KL to attend the conference, you may also show your support and keep an eye on the events by tweeting. See the details here on how you can show your support virtually.
I’m really excited for this event and I sure do look forward to sharing my key takeaways on women empowerment and social media for social good (social impact).
