On Friday, November 19, OWSD National Chapters in 14 countries around the world gathered locally for the final day of the OWSD 6th General Assembly and International Conference. Chapters in Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, Guatemala, Jordan, Kenya, Morocco, Myanmar, Nepal, Palestine, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe held events over the course of the day, coming together from 14:30-17:00 CET in an online meeting organized by the OWSD Secretariat in Trieste, Italy, which also held an in-person local gathering.
The day was one of sharing, networking, celebrating, and inspiring. Some chapters took the opportunity to hold their official launch events (Morocco) or work out their annual plans for the coming year (Nepal), while others organized poster presentations by early career women (Palestine), workshops on strengthening leadership skills (Botswana), or storytelling contests (Guatemala).
