The regional conference was an opportunity for senior leaders to engage with service members of all ranks and share experiences and views on advancing the role of women in defense and public security sectors.

“Discussions on Women Peace and Security must evolve with the changing environment. It must contemplate gender issues that surfaced during the global pandemic, those that are anticipated by recession, it must involve gender in cybersecurity, disinformation, displacements and climate change in order to remain relevant.

This was my charge to those in attendance at the inaugural Women Peace and Security Conference which Guyana is privileged to be hosting. I was extremely pleased and proud to share a space with powerful women who are demolishing barriers which limit the advancement of women and girls.

I urged those attending the conference to use the two days for information sharing, building resilient partnerships, finding solutions and formulating approaches to the necessary steps that are to be taken individually and collectively to guarantee the advancement of women.” – FirstLady Arya Ali
