Pathfinder to Join Women Deliver and Girls Not Brides for TEDxChange Twitter Chat on Girls and Women

On Wednesday, April 3, Pathfinder International will join Women Deliver and Girls Not Brides for a TEDxChange Twitter chat on how women and girls can be catalysts for change through "positive disruption." Read on to learn more about the chat schedule and how you can join the conversation on Twitter.

Girls and women are catalysts for change (#girls4change). When girls and women are educated, healthy, and empowered, they invest back into their families, communities, and nations. We know it’s true—when girls and women survive, the world thrives.

That’s why we want to make sure girls and women are a focal point in the TEDxChange 2013 discussions. This year, the event will be convened by Melinda Gates and will center on the theme of “positive disruption.” Disruption can be a positive—sometimes vital—catalyst for change. It can challenge old assumptions, ignite conversations, activate authorities and expose new possibilities. Disruption can shed a unique light on difficult issues, giving a fresh urgency and perspective to the challenges of our global community. To solve the most intractable challenges in health and development, we need positive disruption.

Join a twitter chat hosted by Women Deliver, Pathfinder, and Girls Not Brides to share ideas, spark discussion, and engage leaders about how girls and women are catalysts for change. On April 3rd from 11am – 12pm EDT (3pm – 4pm GMT), follow the discussion using the hashtag #girls4change.

We hope you can join our lively conversation! See you on Twitter.
