At the event, help on Sept. 5, eight delegates participated in a roundtable with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, where they spoke of ways to help advance gender equality and inclusion—in all areas of life and business—in order to build better futures for the younger generations.
(The queen died on Sept. 8, of old age, per her death certificate.)
Each delegate shared more on their projects—all geared toward accelerating social impact across the globe. Swara Patel spoke on period poverty, Shilpa Yalagadda voiced her efforts to support women-led businesses, and Nhial Deng spoke of the need to help women living in refugee camps.
Writer and disability activist Sinéad Burke joined the duke and duchess of Sussex in moderating the roundtable.
Launched in 2009, One Young World is a global charity that supports and helps guide young leaders who are taking action to solve the world’s biggest challenges by promoting their ideas and connecting them with the resources they need. Currently, the organization has a network of over 13,700 young leaders whose projects have directly impacted communities around the world for the better.
Meghan, the duchess of Sussex, has been a supporter of One Young World since before she met Prince Harry. She first joined as a counsellor at the 2014 Summit in Dublin, where she spoke to a room of young leaders about the importance of women's rights, and the role men play in helping achieve true gender equality.
