The UN Day Luncheon in OKC -- It's Time!
- It's Time to Reserve Your Seat!
Our annual UN Day Luncheon will take place on Saturday, October 22nd, at Oklahoma City University.
Here are some reasons why you should make a reservation to attend the luncheon TODAY!
(1) Enjoy the company of some of the most interesting people in the OKC metro area ... United Nations folks are open, friendly, intelligent, clear-thinking, and curious. We have a shared sense of optimism about the future of the human race. Meet some new friends.
(2) We believe in the values of the United Nations -- peace, justice, equal rights, the rule of law, social progress, greater freedom, and "the dignity and worth of the human person." You're good with that, aren't you?
(3) The folks at OCU always serve up some good food ... M-m-m-m-m!
(4) Do you ever think about the economic empowerment of women -- especially in relation to peacebuilding? Our keynote speaker thinks about this connection all the time. She is Dr. Terry Neese, and she is the founder and CEO of the Institute for the Economic Empowerment of Women.
(5) Shake hands with a member of the Oklahoma Women's Hall of Fame -- that's Dr. Neese. She's a trailblazer. In 1990, she was the first woman nominated by a major political party for the seat of Lt. Governor of our state.
(6) In the Q&A session following Dr. Neese's talk, we're going to ask her to comment on the award of the Nobel Prize for Peace to 3 women activists who are focused on equal rights, conflict resolution, and peacebuilding.
(7) Your presence at the luncheon will be a statement of support for the UN's efforts to raise the status of women around the world.
(8) We'll recognize the winner of our 2011 Public Service Award -- Mr. Lester Claravall, Child Labor Law specialist at the Oklahoma Department of Labor.
(9) We'll announce our new UNA-OKC Model UN program -- an opportunity for high school students to participate in the UN Association's youth leadership development initiative that uses reality-based simulations to teach communications, problem solving, teamwork, and critical thinking skills.
(10) Gov. Mary Fallin has proclaimed the recognition of UN Day in Oklahoma. "Oklahomans widely acknowledge and recognize the importance of the United Nations and its benefit to America and the world."
