October 11th is @UNICEF’s Int’l Day Of The Girl. In 2020, UNICEF is joining with women and men everywhere to reimagine a more equitable world for girls & amplifying the voices of those building it.
Diplomat Ireland‘s Publisher, Michael Mulcahy, took the occasion to pay tribute to women and girls on #IDG2020, “We at Diplomat Ireland and No.1 Media salute girls everywhere for continuing to break-down barriers and make real the ideas of equality, agency and presence in all sectors of society, everywhere, especially the diplomatic sector.”
Of the 62 Missions in Ireland at least 15 are led by women leading as Heads of Mission as either accredited Ambassadors or Chargé d’Affaires. This year, Her Excellency Anna Sochanska, Ambassador of Poland, spearheaded a project to celebrate women leading in the field of diplomacy in Ireland and to encourage girls everywhere to reach their potential. Developed and produced by the Polish Embassy in Dublin, a special video features the female Diplomatic Heads of Mission of the following countries: Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Cyprus, Finland, Germany, Greece, Nigeria, Palestine, Poland, Romania, South Africa, and Ukraine.
Congratulations to all the women and girls who continue to make the world a better place!
