On March 31st, 2018, Women LEAD Nepal will hold a one-day leadership summit for youth called OWN IT Nepal. OWN IT Nepal seeks to bridge the gap between Nepali female leaders of the 21st century and the young women who aspire to be like them by producing accessible events for all demographics—not just those who can afford to pay their way.
OWN IT Nepal aims to bring together 200+ ambitious young women who can be the future leaders of Nepal. Through OWN IT Nepal, we aim to rewrite the narrative about what it means to be a woman in Nepali society and bring together youth who are eager to contribute to their country through art, business, journalism, politics, public service and more!
The first OWN IT Summit was held at Georgetown University in the USA. This would mark the first international expansion of the summit. OWN IT Nepal is being independently organized under the leadership of ten young women aged 18-26.
Tickets to the event are 300 rupees. It includes a vegetarian lunch and two tea breaks. Attendees must be present for the entire event. You must also pick up your ticket one week after reserving your ticket or lose your seat.
Date: March 31, 2018
Time: 8:30 am – 5:30 pm
Venue: Bougainvilla, Tripureshwor
How is OWN IT Nepal Different Than Other Events?
OWN IT Nepal is guided by four core values—leadership, accessibility, inclusivity, and feminism. Feminism is inherently part of our mission and goal. We strive to celebrate and cultivate unafraid feminists leaders who are ready to champion gender equality and create a better Nepal for everyone.Through OWN IT Nepal, we hope to not only have important conversations relevant to Nepal, but also make sure that leaders are accessible and accountable to everyone. OWN IT Nepal includes three on-stage panels that all participants must attend. Afterwards, participants can choose three out of nine different “experiential” sessions to attend.
