As Ideagen TV's special on the "17 Days of Sustainability" continues, ACS Athens President, Dr. Peggy Pelonis led a power panel focusing on #5 of the Sustainable Development Goals, Gender Equality.

During this "Empowering Women & Girls Summit", prominent speakers came together online to discuss and present their approach on Goal 5 of the SDG's: Discussing how ending all discrimination against women and girls is not only a basic human right but crucial for a sustainable future; how empowering women and girls helps economic growth and development. It is now, more than ever, vital to give women equal rights and to continue having the remarkable progress seen in the past 20 years. 

Apart from Dr. Pelonis, the power panel included Aya Burweila/Director at Code on the Road, Dr. Natalia Linos/Executive Director FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard, and former candidate for Congress in MA04, Carla Tanas/Co-founder and managing partner of Industry Disruptors-Game Changers (ID-GC), Bonnie Miller/International Conflict Resolution Trainer at Columbia University, and Ariel White - Tsimikalis/Corporate Finance Partner at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner LLP
