On November 8th and November 9th, Our Secure Future: Women Make the Difference, Global Fund for Women, and Women’s Regional Network will host two separate discussions about how women’s groups across the globe are using United Nations Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1325 to build peace within their communities. Both events will feature insights from Sharon Bagwan Rolls, a Fiji Islander and the Executive Director of femLINKPACIFIC. Through femLINKPACIFIC, Sharon supports young women and rural producers in creating media content across multiple platforms. She also has extensive experience in lobbying for the full implementation of UNSCR 1325.

In 2014, she was appointed to the UN high-level advisory group for the Global Study on UNSCR 1325, and in 2015, she was elected Chairperson of the Board of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict.
