Cityzens Giving Young Leaders Summit Day Four: Mumbai's OSCAR Foundation

Day four of the Cityzens Giving Young Leaders Summit, presented by Etihad Airways, kicked off with energiser sessions led by Young Leaders in Kuala Lumpur and Barranquilla before moving into an educational discussion on female empowerment with City in the Community coaches.

The panel discussed the key differences for female only participation sessions and ways to promote opportunities for female coaches, participants and young leaders.  

Niamh Nolan, Community Outreach Officer – Girls at City in the Community, said:  

“Female empowerment is really important in the work we do. For me, it’s crucial that we break down the barriers that females may face, be it through football, sport or in society in general. It’s about promoting equality and providing opportunities for girls and women within the community.” 

Young Leaders in Manchester and around the world are working hard to engage girls and young women in their programmes.
