#ChoosetoChallenge International Women’s Day

Date: Tuesday 9th March

Time: 10.00am – 11.00am

Location: Zoom – Online

This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #ChooseToChallenge and our two trailblazing speakers will discuss how they each have challenged community differences in aid of peace development locally and internationally.

Tara Grace Connolly is a former pupil of Assumption Grammar in Ballynahinch and is the first person from Northern Ireland to be appointed as a Youth Delegate to the United Nations. Tara Grace will assist the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in a year that Ireland has been elected to the UN Security Council. Tara Grace is also Treasurer for the Northern Ireland Youth Forum and a former chairwoman of the Northern Ireland Youth Forum and the Belfast Youth Forum.

Dorina Prech is an award-winning international peacebuilding and conflict management professional from Kenya. Her peacebuilding and mediation work has taken her around the world including Northern Ireland.  Dorina was hosted by TIDES Training alongside other young women leaders from Europe and the Middle East. During her time in Belfast, Dorina met people directly involved in the Troubles, as well as meeting the then Mayor of Belfast Nichola Mallon for some words of inspiration.

Facilitated by award-winning BBC radio presenter Emer Maguire, we will celebrate International Women’s Day 2021 by being inspired by these emerging leaders in peace development.
